Update: Images released of DePaul University attacker

Police today released images of a suspect who’s being sought in connection with the sexual abuse of a DePaul University student near the school’s Lincoln Park campus on May 24th.

The victim was walking north in the 2400 block of North Sheffield around 1:45 a.m. when the man approached her from behind and touched her inappropriately, police said. The offender then fled north on Sheffield.

He is described as a man in his mid-20’s who stands about 5’10” tall and has a small build. He has black hair, could be Asian and was wearing a gray sweatshirt with black shorts, police said.

Police have now issued these images that show the suspect and his vehicle near the scene of the crime.

Any information about the second incident may be relayed to Area North detectives at 312-744-8261. The case number is JC-276138.

Separate from this case is a series of three incidents in which women have been sexually abused or assaulted while walking in the same general area of Lincoln Park.
