Lakeview Woman Followed From Red Line, Sexually Assaulted Overnight

The victim told police that she may have been followed from the Sheridan Red Line station | Wikicommons
A 28-year-old Lakeview woman was followed into her apartment building and sexually assaulted this morning, police said. No one is in custody.

The victim said the offender may have trailed her from the Sheridan Red Line station to her apartment building in the 1000 block of West Dakin around 4:10 a.m.

At the building, he grabbed her from behind, forced her into the residence, and assaulted her, police said. The suspect then fled out the back door of the building and through an alley, police said.

Video footage is being collected from the CTA.

A source said police are working with a preliminary description of the offender: male, black, 25- to 35-years-old, and over 6-feet tall. He has a tattoo on the right side of his neck and was wearing a thin gray sweater with light blue jeans.

The victim was treated and released from Thorek Hospital, police said.

      Keep up the old 'demand immediate action' (of other people) tactic. That'll get things changed.

  5. $100 says the guy who did this had a previous record of the same and was released on 50 pct time.

    Is it possible for the victims of these repeat monsters to sue judges? If I were a lawyer I would do that work pro bono.

  6. Maybe 60 Minutes, or 60 Minutes Australia could do a piece on Crime in Lakeview. Interview Lakeview citizens, victims, business owners and the Aldermen and Rahm.
    Also interview recently retired police officers (the working police officers) can't speak.

    1. 60 Minutes did do a crime in Chicago episode. In it, they blamed everyone but the bad guys.

  8. Not blaming the victim by any means--I'm glad she survived and hope she will recover from the trauma of this horrible ordeal--but women should not be taking the L and walking home at 4 AM. Always take a taxi and ask the driver to wait till you're inside.

  9. 11:52AM, maybe you can provide the money for a taxi or a Uber for the young ladies that are out too late for your tastes?? Yes, you are blaming the victim.

  10. This poor woman, got raped just trying to live her life. Maybe she could not afford a taxi, sometimes they are unsafe too. We are glad CWB is reporting on these crimes, which do not seem to appear in mass media. At some point we will have to do the hard work ourselves of outing soft judges and getting them off the bench; put our money where our mouths are and sponsor groups like goodwill, drug rehab services and others to go inside the prisons; establish safe houses in other cities to help those desperately needing to escape the gang. It is good to voice our frustrations, but more than that is needed. Otherwise the media will continue to portray us as the pouting bourgeoisie who don't want to dirty their hands in taking out their own trash and dealing with their own problems.
    The abundance of businesses here will continue to attract predators from all over. They must have more cameras everywhere possible, and get together and establish well trained private security.
    I guess I should be insulted as some thieves refused to snatch my purse because the strap had safety pins in it. They told one another it was unlikely it had anything worth stealing. Actually they were correct, there is a lesson here somewhere, sorry to say.

  11. She should be able to ride the L without fear. Hell, she should be able to take reasonable steps to keep herself safe.
