The victim described the suspect as a white man in his 30s. She said he is between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet tall, and weighed about 200 pounds. He had short brown hair and was wearing a long dark coat, and jeans, the victim told police.

The incident is under investigation.

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.
