A group of concerned residents gather together in Midlothian to show unity after a series attacks left four women beaten and robbed.
About 25 neighbors came out to walk the neighborhood around the Metra station Tuesday night as part of the community policing committee.
A sign posted on the station door says to call 911 if you’re alone and afraid to walk home and Midlothian police will help you.
But members of the group say they would like to see a police car here every time a train comes in at night.
Police are still looking for the suspect in the attacks. Four women have been attacked in last four weeks, all in close proximity to each other. The latest victim was walking home around 12:30 a.m. Sunday alone from the Metra stop. One of the other victims was just 17. Her parents told WGN News the suspect put a gun to her head. The first victim was attacked as she walked home from the Metra stop a few weeks ago in July.
The suspect wore a black mask in the attacks, and approached his victims from behind.
