In mid-February, Boston police issued a community alert after a man indecently assaulted a young woman as she entered her foyer in the North End.

At this time, police do not believe the incidents are related, a police spokesman said.

Anyone with information is asked to call sexual assault unit detectives at 617-343-4400.
