A Lakeview woman told cops that she was the victim of an attempted criminal sexual assault on a street near Wrigley Field this morning. The incident is under investigation by Chicago police.

The woman said she was walking in the 1200 block of West Addison when an unknown man grabbed her and tried to sexually assault her shortly before 5 a.m.

She escaped from the attempt and called police moments later.

The offender is described as a black man in his mid-20’s who stands about 6’1″ tall and was wearing a red sweater and dark jeans. He was last seen walking westbound on Addison from Magnolia.

Around 9 p.m. last Sunday, a man attacked a woman from behind and forced her into a North Center alley where she was raped and robbed.

No one is in custody for either incident and police have not connected the two cases.
