Public Safety Alert
Lingan Street and area residents, be advised that on Sunday evening, December 3 at 4:30pm, there was a Sexual Assault on the bogs off Lingan Street. A young woman walking her dog was attacked by a man just after dark. Besides taking all precautions while in this area, we also need your help. If you were in the area Sunday night and think you saw anything that would help the investigation please call the Police Station (781-294-8713) and speak to Officer McDonnell or Officer Schleiff. It’s with regret I have to ask this, but when walking the area after dark, that you do it with a friend, or try to do your activities during the day.
I realize there is not much detail about the assault, but this is done for the victim and our investigation, we do have leads and we are committed to keeping all our residents safe, but always, you are your best defense, stay alert and if you see something say something. I will keep you informed as the investigation develops.
