Chicago police on Tuesday afternoon released a new set of images of a “person of interest” being sought in connection with two home invasions and the criminal sexual abuse of two young girls in Lincoln Park. Police today said the man may be from out-of-state.

On May 31, police released video surveillance of the same man walking in a Lincoln Park alley.
Around 2 a.m. on May 27, a man entered a home in the 400 block of West Belden and sexually abused a 13-year-old girl as she slept, police said.
