Police seek suspect in attempted sex assault in Humboldt Park

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police are seeking a male who tried to sexually assault a woman Thursday while she was walking her dog in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.

The suspect approached the 38-year-old woman from an alley near North and Sawyer avenues, according to a community alert from the Shakespeare Police District.

According to police, the suspect grabbed the woman's hair from behind as she passed the mouth of the alley. He continued to hold her hair as he partially removed the woman's pants with his other hand, police said.

The woman told the suspect that she had no money, to which he replied, "That is not what I want," according to the alert. The victim soon broke free and ran to a nearby home at which point the suspect fled the scene westbound down the same alley from which he had initially appeared, police said.

Police described the suspect as a male, unknown race and age, about six feet tall, with a thin build and dark complexion. He was wearing a black ski mask, a black jacket, black gloves, green camouflaged pants, dirty white gym shoes and black hooded sweatshirt with white strings, the release said. The woman added that the offender emitted an "unpleasant odor," according to the release.

Anyone with information about this incident should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200. Tips can also be submitted to tipsoft.com.
