Chicago Police are hoping a picture will help them find the man who sexually assaulted a woman near an “L” stop in the Rogers Park neighborhood.
Police have released an image of the suspect captured by a surveillance camera.
The incident happened around 5:45 a.m. on Wednesday at the Red Line’s Morse station. Police believe the suspect rode on the Red Line for six hours to find a victim. He grabbed a 50-year-old woman as she headed to work, forced her to a nearby construction site, and assaulted her.
A construction worker and a dog walker spotted the woman, and called 911. The suspect then ran off with her purse.
Police are asking anyone with information to call (312) 744-8200 and talk with Area North detectives.
The Guardian Angels escorted people at the Morse Red Line station Thursday morning, and police have increased their patrols.
