A female Harvard graduate student was attacked at knife-point by an unknown assailant at 10:45 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Athens and Grant Streets, close to Leverett Towers.
Cambridge Police said they would release no other information about the nature of the attack and that they did not yet have a description of the assailant ready for release. Police said they are investigating the case and checking to see if there are any connections between this case and others in the area.
The girl who was attacked--who asked to remain unidentified--said, "I feel very strongly that a warning should be issued to girls in the Square radius." She added that "the large number of similar incidents makes extreme precautions necessary."
