Wanted for Attempted Criminal Sexual Assault in Humboldt Park


A 38-year-old woman was walking her dog in the 1600 block of N. Sawyer in Humboldt Park on Jan. 23 at 9 p.m. in the 14th (Shakespeare) District. She observed a man walking eastbound in the alley north of North Ave.

After passing the mouth of the alley, she was grabbed from the back by her hair. The offender held her hair with one hand and partially removed her pants with the other hand. 

The victim told the offender that she did not have any money. He replied, "That is not what I want." The victim broke free and ran home. The offender fled, possibly westbound in the same alley that he came from.
