The Boston Police Department is looking for a man wanted in a sexual assault and home invasion Monday in Jamaica Plain.

The incident happened around noon on Arborway, police said.

Neighbors say they didn't hear anything and are alarmed by the crime.

"I'm just devastated for them it’s a horrible thing because this is such a lovely street," Vanessa Holroyd, who lives nearby, said.

Authorities released surveillance images of the man being sought. He is described as being in his 40s and over 6 feet tall. He was wearing dark-colored clothing and glasses at the time.

This isn't the only incident that has neighbors on edge. Boston police are still looking for a peeping Tom who's been spotted peering into apartments near Boston Collage, just a few miles away.

"That’s maybe when you tighten up a little a bit and really remember to lock the front doors and do all sorts of things," neighbor Tolle Graham said.

There have been no arrests in either case. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 617-343-4400. Anonymous tips can also be left by calling 1-800-494-TIPS or texting "TIP" to 27463.
