I hope she's ok. Besides the trauma, she likely has a concussion.

The report doesn't say how she escaped or whether people intervened to help her - would be good to know.

This seems to detail how nearby school workers saved her; https://boston.cbslocal.com/2021/11/09/dorchester-sex-assault-arrest-nae...

Yikes! This is frightening, and horrible for the victim. But I am confused about what wooded area the report is referring to. The gardens on the the tunnel cap? The tall shrubs next to the Epiphany school? There are no woods anywhere near Shawmut Station.

Don't you know anything with more than 8 trees in an acre is the woods.

There used to be about 7,000 square feet worth of wetlands at the end of Pierce Avenue which was referred to as The Marsh. I have more than that in my backyard now.

The Epiphany School is a great example of a school that does well by kids. Works them hard. They hit the neighborhood originally with a raised well off suburban arrogance of that they were here to "save" the neighborhood. They pulled back from some poorly thought out social and building designs for the area and have filled in well over their 20+ years after original pushback from the people in the area who did not need saving.
