Woman Robbed, Raped At Gunpoint In Lakeview

A 25-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint and raped in her car near Barry and Racine this morning, Chicago police said.

The woman was walking to her car in the 1200 block of West Barry around midnight when a male offender approached her and pulled out a handgun.

He demanded the woman’s money and then forced her into her vehicle at gunpoint. Once inside the car, he sexually assaulted the victim, police said. He then fled in an unknown direction.

Police describe the offender as a black man between 25- and 30-years-old. He stands about 5’9” tall and weighs about 160 pounds. He has short hair, a medium complexion and he has a short beard or scruff on his chin.

Anyone with information about this morning’s attack is asked to call Area North detectives at 312.744.8261 about case #JA169654.

  1. Truly awful! If they catch this "man" I can't wait to read how he was out on parole after serving a fraction of his sentences from previous convictions.

  2. I wonder if there are as many cameras on the corner in that area as there are on the south & west sides and in Uptown. As I walk around Lakeview, I see no cameras mounted on the poles and maybe that should be a crime priority going forward.

  3. I moved out of Lakeview in May of 2016, and I gotta say I am glad. I would not be OK with my wife being out alone anymore when it is not full daylight. And she always had to go in to work at 5 - just not a safe situation.

  4. This is heartbreaking and disgusting!
    We are under attack. Every one of us!
    Nothing is being done to protect innocent people. It will continue to get worse, until we stand up and fight back!

  5. The local PRAVDA are saying the description of the POS is "vague".

  6. Arm yourselves & get trained. The police can't help you. Keep aware of your surroundings and look out for your neighbors.

  7. This has gotten so out of control. A 25 year old girl's life has been turned upside down. Almost daily violent crime has ruined this neighborhood. Nothing is ever done. Emmanuel must go. We need cops on the streets. Can't let it be so easy for these scumbags.

  8. Officials should be ashamed. A public safety disaster. South and West side areas have a squad car on every block. Some have 2 per block. Are they still sending your 019 tact cars to the ghetto ?

  10. Years ago police monitored Broadway and walked the beat cleaning up the prostitution ring in the area. We need visable police to get help everyday.It gets worse day by day in Lakeview. We need something to be done ASAP before there is a mass exodus and Lakeview will become a slum.
