The woman told officers she said she had been sexually assaulted by a man while on her way home from Washington Square, police said.

The woman had been at a restaurant in the area and then stopped at a 7-Eleven about 11:30 p.m. Friday. Shortly after leaving the convenience store, she was seen with a man.

“At this time, this is considered a random attack,” said Lieutenant Philip Harrington.

The man seen with the victim is described as white, about 6 feet tall, 30 years old, with light brown hair and blue eyes, police said.
