• Police investigate reported attack on female BU student


    BROOKLINE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Brookline and Boston University police are looking for a suspect who attacked a female student near campus Sunday.

    Police said the suspect tried to rob the woman at about 10 p.m. on Amory Street. The victim told police the man grabbed her from behind and then hit her in the face.

    Nearby dog walkers heard the woman scream and rushed to help. That is when the suspect reportedly ran to an SUV waiting around the corner.

    Officials believe the SUV could be a light colored Honda Pilot with a dent on the driver's side. The suspect, who they do not believe was armed, was wearing a ski mask and gloves at the time. He is described as being about 5'8" tall with a medium build.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Brookline police at 617-730-2222 or BU police at 617-353-2121.
