UPDATE: Cops Release More Detail Of Wrigleyville Robbery, Sexual Assault Attempt

The woman was pushed into this alley between the 3500 blocks of Wilton and Fremont, police said today.

Chicago police have just issued an updated, more detailed community alert regarding a robbery and attempted sexual assault in Wrigleyville early Saturday.

Updated location of Saturday’s attack 

In the new alert, police say a 26-year-old woman was walking eastbound on Cornelia from Sheffield around 1:10 a.m. on Saturday when the offender pushed her into the north alley between Wilton and Fremont.

The man then asked the victim if she had any money on her and the woman gave the offender about $20, the updated alert says.

The alert then goes into graphic detail about the man’s attempt to sexually assault the woman:

The offender pushed the victim up against a garbage can and pulled down victim’s pants. The victim was able to pull her pants back up. The offender pulled the victim down steps onto the porch of the Garden Apt at the 3500 block of W. [sic] Wilton. The offender pushed the victim down, pulled out his penis and put his penis in the victim’s face. The victim stated the offender had a condom on. The victim was made to touch the offender’s penis.

Within a few moments, the people who live in the garden apartment returned home, and the offender fled, according to police.

Police said the offender is a black man between 23- and 29-years-old who stands about 5’10” tall. He’s thin and may have a thin mustache. The victim said he was wearing a red jacket with a white stripe or star with baggy jeans.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Area North investigators at (312) 744-8200.
