Kidnapped Woman Jumps From Moving Car To Escape Sexual Assault, Cops Say; Second Case Eyed

Chicago police are warning about a kidnapping and attempted criminal sexual assault as well as a separate attempted kidnapping in the Irving Park and Lincoln Square neighborhoods this week. The cases have not been publicly linked, but the crimes bear strong resemblances.

Tuesday's victim was abducted at this CTA bus stop, police said. (Google)
One victim bailed out of the offenders’ car while it was moving near Cullom and Western when one of the men tried to sexually assault her in the back seat Tuesday morning, police said.

That victim was standing at a bus stop in the 3400 block of W. Montrose around 6:15AM when two men in a silver sedan pulled into a nearby parking lot and tried to lure the woman into their car. When she refused, the men approached her on foot, took her by the hand, and put her in the vehicle’s back seat.

One offender drove the vehicle while the other sat in the back seat with the victim, police said. Moments later, the man in the back seat attempted to rape the woman while the vehicle was in motion. The woman fought the man off and jumped from the car while it was moving in traffic, police said.

She was treated for her injuries at Swedish Covenant Hospital.

The attackers are described as two Hispanic men in their mid-20’s to early 30’s. One was 5’10” to 6’2” tall, 180 pounds, with a shag hair style. The other was younger, stood about 5’6” tall, and weighed about 155 pounds.

The abduction was captured on a Chicago Police Department pod camera, a source said.

Second Incident

On Thursday, a woman fled into a Lincoln Square Starbucks after an unknown man tried to force her into his car near Wilson and Lincoln around 5:10PM, according to a police source.

The offender parked a red 4-door Nissan, got out, and grabbed the woman by the arm in an attempt to make her go with him. The woman struck the man and fled into the coffee shop, the source said.

This attacker is also described as a Hispanic man. He’s 30- to 38-years-old, stands 5’7” tall, and weighs about 200 pounds.

  1. WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING TO THIS CITY???? My God, this is terrifying. You're not even safe at a busy intersection and someone jumps out and tries to pull you into a car.

    Lesson--do not ever let your guard up at any time, anywhere.

  2. Crime has nothing to do with the weather according to CPD. WOW ! City wide - 28 shot since Friday not counting Saturday night or Sunday - 10 homicides since the 1st of May. Everything that comes out of headquarters says that "crime is down". LOL

    1. But the majority of people believe the BS told to them by the Mainstream media, City Hall, and the Aldercreatures. So although crime is most certainly NOT down, the gross (voting) majority believe it is and therefore, we have the situation we do. I moved from LVE to North Center this month, but frankly, I'm concerned I may not have moved far enough. *sigh* I will attend and support and march, picket, or whatever anyone does, but JEEZ, someone needs to actually step up and plan something instead of just calling for someone to do it. Can SOMEONE please (WO)MAN UP and just set a time, date, and place for some kind of organized angriness?

  3. Sadly I saw a Hundyai commercial and thought this looks like the model car on CWB for the sexual assault case.

  4. "Investigators are asking for the public’s help in solving these crimes."

    Strange. They never seem to do this for others crimes. I wonder what their motivation is.

  5. Have more squad cars parole the streets ...

  6. The Sun Times is now reporting that there is a man walking onto Lincoln Square school play grounds engaging children in conversations........ Of course nothing from the Alderman. You all think Tunney is bad? Pawar has his pet projects in the neighborhood and could care less about anything else - however, he has almost everyone fooled that he's the second coming of Christ, it's truly amazing......

    CWB - thank you for reporting on this!

    1. You hit the nail on the head about Pawar,but don't worry,he said he is running for only two terms.What makes matters worse,he's the Alderman of the Mayor's home ward and this crap goes on.
