Bail set for man charged in Humboldt Park beating, sex assault

A man who is charged with beating and sexually assaulting a woman near a bus stop in Humboldt Park was ordered held on $750,000 bail Friday.

Michael Campbell, 28, is charged with Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault, Kidnapping and Aggravated Robbery.

Early Monday morning, police say a 20-year-old woman was attacked at a bus stop on the 100 block of Western Ave.

She was dragged into a gangway, beaten and sexually assaulted.

The victim identified her attacker as a man captured in video footage at a gas station across the street from the bus stop taken minutes before the assault.

Another witness contacted police after the images were distributed to the news media and also identified the man as Campbell.

Campbell confessed to being at the bus stop and robbing the victim, she said.

He was taken into custody by police after receiving a tip from the Guardian Angels Thursday.

    Why are you using race as a factor? Do you know what century we are in? Yes, racism still exists, but does that mean you have to constantly put down races for your own satisfaction. It seems as though you profile certain crimes by race and that is so low down and ridiculous….Remember misery loves company, and you sure are miserable….

      Obama made this a race issue, Al Sharpton made this a race issue, the DOJ made this a race issue, Jamie Fox & The Miami Heat made this a race issue!! Saying Trayvon was innocent…….BS. You can see his text messages or school records that show he was on the path of becoming another Chicago gang criminal!! GZ was at his job to stop criminals, Trayvon was becoming a criminal by asking a friend about buying a gun……illegally!!

    There are plenty of White, Hispanics, Europeans etc., that are committing the same crimes, so why pin point only African Americans??? Grow up!
