A woman was hospitalized yesterday after being assaulted outside of 29 Garden St., a spokesman for the Cambridge Police said.
The spokesman declined to release the name of the victim or comment on further details of the attack. He also declined to elaborate on the woman's physical condition.
The woman was a resident of an apartment complex on Chauncy St., near the Harvard Police Dept., according to several tenants of the complex. They said it appeared as though the woman had been cut with pieces of broken glass following a dispute with her boyfriend.
Pools of blood remained in and around a telephone booth on Garden St. outside the Harvard Police station, and bloody footprints covered the sidewalk.
The police spokesman said an official statement on the incident would be released today.
