Police said a woman was sitting on a platform-level bench at Lawrence station when she was approached by a man at around 12:30 p.m.

He began talking with the woman and then began assaulting her, police said.

A passerby intervened and the man fled the station.

Investigators describe the man as being between five-foot-seven-inches and five-foot-eight-inches tall, in his 20s with a medium build.

“The man was wearing a blue Dallas Mavericks Michael Finley jersey, beige shorts, slippers and a red baseball cap,” police said in a news release Saturday. “He was also wearing dark sunglasses and had on white wireless earbuds.”
