The victim of a sexual assault in Edgewater came forward in hopes of generating new information to help police find her attacker.

Exactly one month ago, 22-year-old Alexandria Clarke was grabbed by a man at a bus stop at Clark and Devon on the city’s north side.

Clarke says the man dragged he to a nearby alley, where he assaulted and robbed her.

“Half of my brain kind of wanted to remember as much as I could, as many details as I could,” said Clark.  “The other half is like, just block it out and let it go.”

On Sunday, Clarke was among those on hand as the Guardian Angels held a free self-defense class.

She told reporters she believes the man who assaulted her has attacked other women before and she doesn’t want it to happen to anyone else.

“I guess I don’t care if people know,” said Clarke.  “I’m not ashamed.   A crime is a crime.”

The suspect is described as 35 to 40 years old, 5’9 to 5’11, weighing about 300 pounds.

A five thousand dollar reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction.
