Boston Police report charging Abas Bilal, 23, of Charlestown for an August break-in at Polk and Bunker Hill streets and say they plan to charge him with additional break-ins, including one in which he allegedly began to sexually assault a sleeping woman.
Police say the formal charge is for an Aug. 20 incident:
The female victim told police that she returned home to find the suspect, Bilal, in her residence. Bilal fled the scene on foot, and the victim later discovered that her wallet was missing and unauthorized charges had been placed on her credit cards.
Police add detectives are compiling the evidence they need to also charge him for two other similar and more recent incidents: Early in the morning of Jan. 16, somebody broke into an apartment on Old Ironsides Way but was scared off when the woman he began to attack started screaming and attracted her roommates. Early on the morning of Jan. 21, somebody broke into a Decatur Street apartment and stole several items.
