Police used Ventra card data and surveillance images to identify the man who sexually assaulted a woman after following her home from a North Side CTA station, according to prosecutors.
Borbor Sesay was extradited to Chicago this week after being located by authorities in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The 23-year-old is charged with three counts of felony aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of felony robbery. Judge Susana Ortiz ordered him held without bail.
Police said a 26-year-old woman was followed from the Morse Red Line station by a man who then sexually assaulted her on the 1300 block of West Lunt around 1:30 a.m on July 9th.
As the woman entered her apartment building, the offender forced his way in behind her, police said. The man struck the victim repeatedly in her face and sexually assaulted her in a stairwell near the lobby.
Prosecutors said Sesay demanded money from the victim during the attack and then continued to sexually assault her after she handed over about $120.
Two people separately identified him to police after CTA surveillance images of a suspect were released on July 10th. Investigators also identified Sesay through his Ventra card transactions.
Michigan authorities said Sesay confessed to assaulting and robbing the woman while in their custody.
