Chicago police detectives are looking for an individual suspected of sexually assaulting a woman and attacking two others for a month in Logan Square, according to a community alert from authorities.
The suspect was wearing dark clothing and a surgical mask and was between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in tall. He was also wearing some sort of vest, possibly a construction or Amazon vest, at the time of the attacks, police said.
The first incident occurred on Monday, April 11, when the suspect walked into a building on the 2000 block of North Humboldt Park Boulevard and knocked on the door of a 36-year-old woman, police said. He asked if a particular woman lived in the building, then continued a conversation, at which point the offender attempted to enter the woman’s unit, police said. The victim sprayed the assailant with pepper spray, who then fled the building.
About three weeks later, a 39-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in the 1600 block of North Humboldt Boulevard. At around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6, an unknown person followed the victim from behind and grabbed her as she entered her apartment building, authorities said. He then slammed his head against the wall before sexually assaulting her, police said.
The assailant is said to be wearing a construction vest.
The most recent attack happened on Saturday, when a 36-year-old woman was attacked while entering her building. The assailant approached the woman from behind, grabbed her and placed a black bag over her head, police said. The woman screamed, causing the attacker to run east into a nearby alley, authorities said.
The suspect is believed to have been wearing a vest similar to that worn by Amazon workers.
Anyone with information about the incidents or a potential suspect is asked to call police at 312-746-6554.
