An offender is in custody after a 24-year-old Lakeview woman reported being sexually assaulted and robbed early Sunday by a man that she met in a bar.

The woman was attacked in an apartment in the 500 block of West Oakdale around midnight by the man that she had reportedly met recently.

After the assault, the man fled with valuables, including the woman’s cellphone. She used a neighbor’s phone to call police minutes later.

Cops followed pings from the victim’s stolen phone to the Englewood neighborhood and took an offender into custody after a short foot chase in the 5500 block of South LaSalle around 1:20 a.m.

The victim’s phone was recovered from the suspect, police said.
