Woman sexually assaulted in Lakeview taken to hospital

A woman was sexually assaulted in Lakeview early Sunday morning and police are warning residents in the area.

Details are limited. The 24-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at 4:30 a.m. Sunday in the 400 block of West Belmont.  She may have also been physically assaulted as well.  She was taken to the hospital for treatment.  It’s believed she’s still there.

Community activist Andrew Holmes says police were at the scene earlier today looking for surveillance footage that may help them.

Chicago police say the victim was so distraught that they were unable to interview her this morning and are still working on a sketch of the suspect to release to the public.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police.
