Police have released this sketch of a man who may be responsible for three attacks in south suburban Park Forest in the past few days.

The first involved a teenage girl who was walking through Winnebago Park on Tuesday.  The man robbed her at knife point then grabbed her breasts over her bra.  The girl got away.

 “I think it’s perverted.  He should be locked up, these young girls don’t need that in their lives.”

 The second incident happened this morning at Westgate and Westwood.  The man felt the girl over her clothes.

 “Parents go to work and have to worry about their kids getting to school safe.  It’s crazy.”

 Forty minutes later at 9 a.m., a 39-year-old woman was walking near Shabbona Park about half a mile away.  When a man grabbed her from behind and thrust his pelvis at her.  In the other incidents the man was wearing sweats.  This time he was naked except for a skull cap.

 “Have you ever seen this guy?  No but i remember the face.”

 Rudy Morgan walks in this area and watches out for his neighbors.  He’ll be extra careful now.  So will Vince Reeves who has an 11 year old daughter.

 “About a week ago I did see something over by that shed.  Didn’t pay much attention.  Will you pay more attention now?  Yes, I will.  Yes I will.”
