Hoboken ladies beware: Sexual assault uptown

Another reason why walking alone late at night isn’t always a good idea.

This past weekend, a woman who resides uptown on Hudson Street was sexually assaulted (inappropriate touching) by an unknown assailant as she entered her apartment. Apparently, this man followed her home from the Hoboken PATH station at around 2am, and rushed towards her in the vestibule of her building.

The incident took place very quickly, and police said the victim was unable to get a good enough look her attacker before he fled.

Best bet when going home late at night (especially when alcohol is involved) is to travel in groups, or take a taxi home!
