Lakeview: Woman reports sexual assault by apartment intruder

Approximate locations of the three incidents.

A 59-year-old woman told police that she came home Saturday afternoon and discovered a man inside her high-rise apartment in the 3100 block of North Sheridan Road. The man forced her to perform a sex act and then left the building, police said. No suspect description was available from police. The incident remains under investigation.

The reported sexual assault was the second time since Thursday that a woman arrived home to find intruders in her apartment in the same neighborhood. The two cases have not been connected by investigators.

Thursday evening, a woman returned home in the 3900 block of North Pine Grove and walked in on two men as they burglarized her apartment, police said. One of the men pulled the 22-year-old victim into the apartment while displaying a handgun. He demanded the woman’s property while the other man went through her pockets, police said. The two men then fled.
