Chicago police are searching for a suspect who is wanted in a criminal sexual abuse incident near the Orange Line in McKinley Park.

Police say a 22-year-old woman was walking from the 35th/Archer CTA stop to the parking lot in the 3600 block of S Oakley just before 9 a.m. last Thursday when she was approached by a man.

The attacker threw her to the ground, lifted up her skirt, and took off her underpants. He tried to cover her mouth with a bandana.

Workers at Pablo's Tire Shop and Autos R Us heard a woman screaming. The men yelled at him and chased him northbound on Oakley until he disappeared.

On Thursday and again on Monday Chicago police were called by people who reported seeing the suspect, but the callers say by the time officers arrived, the guy was gone.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, 6’3 with corn rows and a goatee. He was wearing light blue jeans and a light grey t-shirt.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at (312) 747-8380.

    You known Chicago’s laws are a joke if criminals aren’t even afraid to attack during the day now. They know they either won’t get caught, or will simply be placed in jail and raise our taxes to maintain them.
