A woman was sexually assaulted on Beacon Hill Monday evening, the fourth time since May 30 that an attack took place in the neighborhood, police said. Boston police said a woman was walking on Brimmer Street at about 6:15 p.m. when a man approached her, “indecently assaulted” her, and then ran away. While police said they have not definitively linked any of the assaults, the descriptions of the suspect and locations and nature of the attacks have similarities, police spokeswoman Katherine Shea said. Police described the suspect as a male in his mid-20s who is 5-feet-10 and between 160 and 170 pounds.
