Cambridge police are investigating a reported sexual assault that took place early Tuesday. 

The victim told officers that at approximately 12:20 a.m. she was talking with three people on the 200 block of Franklin Street in Cambridgeport – and does not recall what happened next. The victim, who is adult and unhoused, called in police at 3:14 a.m. 

The victim said she woke up in a parking lot in Central Square “having been assaulted,” police said. She was taken to a hospital.

The department has assigned additional patrols to the area as a precaution, spokesperson Robert Goulston said.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call (617) 349-3300 or make contact anonymously. Residents should call 911 immediately if they ever feel threatened or observe any suspicious activity.
