BOSTON (AP) - Boston police believe two sexual assaults reported in Brighton Thursday night were committed by the same suspect and are asking for the public’s help to identify him.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/VukrXs ) that authorities say a woman reported an attack around 7:50 p.m. on Brighton Avenue, after which the suspect fled on foot on Gardner Street toward Harvard Avenue.

About 40 minutes later, another woman reported an assault by a man matching his description near Quint and Brighton avenues.

Both victims described the suspect as a white man in his late 30s to early 40s, about 5‘8” tall with a slim build and short brown hair that may be balding.

Anyone with information is urged to call detectives at 617-343-4400.
