WRIGLEYVILLE: Woman Followed Home, Choked

A Wrigleyville woman was attacked by a man who followed her home from the Sheridan Red Line overnight.

According to the victim, the unknown offender continued to follow as she entered a multi-unit residence in the 3800 block of Sheffield around 2:40AM. There, he suddenly began choking her. The man fled when the victim screamed for help.

The attacker is described as a Hispanic man, 5’7″ tall with a thin build, in his 20’s. He wore a dark or possibly gray coat and may have had a buzz-style haircut.

Because the attacker did not say anything or go beyond choking the victim during the incident, his motives are unclear and the case is recorded as a simple battery in CPD case HX160302.
