Tyrone Robinson, a 26-year-old parolee from the Englewood neighborhood, has been charged in the case along with two other violent crimes against women since Christmastime.

Around 1:10 a.m. on Saturday, Robinson pushed a 26-year-old woman into an alley in the 900 block of West Cornelia where he robbed and then tried to sexually assault the victim before the attack was interrupted by nearby residents, police said.

Cops, aided by video from bars in the area of Belmont and Sheffield, tracked Robinson down on Wednesday afternoon.

During their investigation, police determined that Robinson is also responsible for grabbing a 19-year-old woman from behind and sexually assaulting her in a stairwell in the 300 block of West Roosevelt at 12:45 a.m. on December 20, police said.

He is also accused of robbing a 33-year-old woman in the 1400 block of South Federal around 9:20 p.m. on January 31, authorities said.

Prosecutors have charged Robinson with three felony counts of robbery, one felony count of criminal sexual assault, one felony count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and one felony count of attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault while armed with a weapon. He is due in bond court this afternoon.

Robinson has been on parole for burglary and aggravated battery of a police officer since June 2016. In 2009, he was handed a four-year sentence for robbery of a victim over the age of 60, according to state records.
