Avondale woman awakened by intruder in her bed, cops say

A 30-year-old Avondale woman awoke early Monday morning to find an intruder lying on top of her, attempting to pull her comforter away, Chicago police said in a community alert. The woman, believing she was about to be sexually assaulted, screamed for help and the man ran out her apartment’s back door, according to the alert.

Police said it happened around 1 a.m. on the 3000 block of North Spaulding.

The offender is a male of an unknown race with an olive complexion who’s between 30- and 40-years-old, police said. He stands 5’8” to 5’10” tall, weighs 150-180 pounds, and has short black hair. The man wore dark clothing and possibly a hooded sweatshirt, police said.

A CPD surveillance camera captured images of a man running from the area and heading southwest on Dawson Avenue around 1:08 a.m.

Anyone with information about the case can contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8261 regarding case JD-170883.
