BOSTON (WHDH) - Massachusetts State police are investigating a possible sexual assault that occurred Tuesday morning at Carson Beach in South Boston.
Police received a call from a passerby about 6 a.m. after observing a woman in distress. Responding troopers found a woman who told them that a man had raped her around 4:30 a.m., according to a state police spokesperson.
The woman was taken by paramedics to Boston Medical Center to undergo an examination.
The suspect fled the area prior to troopers arriving at the scene, the spokesperson added. Investigators are working to develop a description of the suspect.
A preliminary investigation suggested that the man was a part of a group of homeless people gathered near a bathhouse on the beach.
No additional details were available.
