Chicago police have issued new information about yesterday morning’s attempted sexual abuse of a Lane Tech student near the school’s campus. CWBChicago first reported on the incident yesterday afternoon.

Last night, police issued these photos of the suspect which were taken by surveillance cameras at McDonald’s, 2608 West Addison. The restaurant is located across the street from Lane’s campus.

In updated information from an earlier statement, the new community alert said the incident unfolded around 7 a.m. when the offender sat down next to the 15-year-old girl and tried to solicit sexual favors in exchange for money.

The man then touched the girl’s buttocks, exposed himself, and grabbed the girl’s arm, police said.

The girl immediately reported the incident to staff members at Lane and the staff then summoned police. She was not injured.

Police said the suspect is a Hispanic man between 23- and 30-years-old who stands 5’6” to 5’9” tall and weighs 170 to 195 pounds.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Area North investigators at (312) 744-8261.
