Female jogger indecently touched in Revere

REVERE — State police are looking for the man who allegedly indecently assaulted a 33-year-old female jogger Wednesday morning on Revere Beach Boulevard.

The woman told state police shortly before 6 a.m. that she was running north along the sea wall side of the Boulevard near Revere Street when a man suddenly appeared in front of her.

“The man verbally accosted her and then grabbed her chest and buttocks,” David Procopio, state police spokesman, said in a statement. “The woman yelled at him, and the man began running south on the Boulevard and then onto Ocean Avenue toward the Wonderland MBTA station.”

Responding troopers were unable to locate the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic or white man in his early 20s. The suspect was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black and white bandana, possibly a skull-style bandana. The victim told police she had seen the man before while she was running.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity can call state police in Revere at (781) 284-0038.

Police are urging anyone who uses any public space to be aware of their surroundings at all times and carry a charged cell phone to call 911 if they feel threatened or observe anything or anyone suspicious.
