A 23-year-old woman was beaten, robbed, and assaulted by a man who followed her from the Damen Blue Line station early Sunday, police said in a bulletin Tuesday evening.

The man trailed the victim for several blocks before grabbing her and pulling her into a gangway in the 1600 block of North Bell around 3:25 a.m., authorities said.

The woman was beaten, robbed and disrobed by the man in the passageway. A source said she was still unclothed when a passer-by discovered her around 3:40 a.m.

CTA surveillance images released Tuesday night show the suspect entering the Damen Blue Line station after the attack.

Police said the offender is black, 20- to 25-years-old, 5’7” tall, and 150-160 pounds.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets.
