Police looking for man who’s groping women at Northwest Side parks

Police are trying to track down a man who groped three women in separate incidents at parks on the Northwest Side. All of the cases were reported on March 19, according to a community alert that CPD released Wednesday evening.

The man approached women from behind and grabbed their buttocks, then left the area in a vehicle. Police said the incidents happened in Horner Park, 2741 West Montrose, at 8:41 a.m.; in River Park, 5100 North Albany, at 9:30 a.m.; and in Ronan Park, 3000 West Argyle, at 6:40 p.m.
