ADVISORY: Cambridge Police Arrest Suspect after Two Indecent Assaults in Inman Square Area

Juvenile Charged with Indecent Assault & Battery


At approximately 6:49PM on January 5th, Cambridge Police responded to a report of a female who was groped on Elm Street between Broadway and Hampshire Street.

A short time later at 6:54PM, another female reported being groped on Columbia Street.

Cambridge Police patrol units and detectives flooded the area, and a 14 year old juvenile male suspect was quickly stopped, arrested, and charged with two counts of Indecent Assault and Battery after the victims positively identified him.

These incidents were similar to the Indecent Assault and Indecent Exposure that occurred in the Inman Square area on Tuesday evening, and while a definitive connection has not been made, investigators are looking into the possibility that these incidents are connected.
