WRIGLEYVILLE SEXUAL ASSAULT: Attacker Armed With Handgun, Victim Says

Just before 3 o'clock this morning, officers responded to the area of Byron and Kenmore, two blocks north of Wrigley Field, to help a young woman who reported being sexually attacked by an offender armed with a handgun. The offender also stole the woman's iPhone.

A bystander stayed with the victim at that location until police arrived.

The offender is described as male, black, 5'10" to 6' tall, about 160 pounds, with a shaved head, wearing glasses, a blue-white striped shirt, and blue jeans. He was last seen headed southbound on Seminary from Byron.

The report has been updated to reflect an attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault case #HW402666.

UPDATED 18 AUGUST 2013: This case was subsequently reclassified. As of this morning, it is classified as a non-aggravated criminal sexual assault attempt.


  1. Ok, this is too much. What the fuck is our city government doing? Something needs to be done!

  2. I have written a song about Lakeview, it is sung to the tune of Eddy Grant's 80's classic "Electric Avenue":

    Now in the street, there is violence
    And-and a lots of work to be done
    teens hanging out robbing all night
    And you cant go out after the set of the sun

    Oh no, we gonna rock down to Belmont Avenue
    And then we'll take it higher
    Oh, we gonna rock down to Belmont Avenue
    Tom Tunney's gonna get fired!

  3. Great song - thanks for sharing. Maybe we could get a video together with local pictures and the song in the background.

  4. RPB- You are SO RIGHT something needs to be done years ago!!!!!!!!!!!
