CHICAGO — Chicago police released images of a man wanted for attacking a DePaul University graduate in Lincoln Park.

The woman, 22, was hospitalized July 18 around 4 a.m. after police said she was found on the 2300 block of North Halsted Street with lacerations to her neck and face.

The woman was taken the Illinois Masonic Hospital and had lost a large amount of blood. As of Wednesday, the woman was still hospitalized in serious condition.
