A woman was sexually assaulted by a man early Monday morning as she walked through the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, Boston police said.

Officers say the woman was first approached by the suspect on the Greenway, and the assault occurred at around 4:11 a.m. Monday in the area of State Street and Atlantic Avenue. The suspect fled the scene.

The victim described the suspect, police said in a release, as a "white or white Hispanic" man in his 40s or 50s. She also told police the man was about five feet five inches tall with a thin build and "scruff on his face," and was wearing a dark-colored Bruins jersey and a baseball hat.

Investigators ask that anyone with information call detectives at 617-343-4400.
