Man speaks after North End assault charges dropped

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - Friends and family hugged Ross Currier outside of court after the state dropped the charges accusing him of a sexual assault in Boston's North End.

“It's been extremely difficult. Think, if you have sons, brothers or friends if this happened to them, how would you feel?" Currier said.

Surveillance video shows the suspect police say sexually assaulted a woman in February.

Days after the attack the victim called 911 saying she had spotted him and 26-year-old Currier, about to be married, was handcuffed and taken to jail.

Now that prosecutors say GPS and cell phone data prove Currier is the wrong guy, he said he feels sorry for the victim.

"I still don't know who you are or what you look like or where you live, but I'm sorry for what happened to you, they'll get the guy that did this,” he said.

Currier’s dad said he is proud of the way his son dealt with the charges and having to wear a GPS monitoring device.


"He's handled himself throughout this whole ordeal with courage and with dignity and with integrity and we're very proud of him,” Ronald Currier said.

On March 16 there was another sexual assault in the North End that police say doesn't appear to be related.

If anybody has any information about either attack they are asked to contact the Boston Police Sexual Assault Unit at (617) 343-4400.
