Police are warning residents about a sexual assault that occurred last weekend in Lincoln Park on the North Side.
Between late night Saturday and early morning Sunday, a 24-year-old woman said she was walking in the 2500 block of North Lincoln when a man grabbed her by the hand and began fondling her, police said.
The man dragged her into an alley and sexually assaulted her, police said. He then ran off.
He is described as a 6-foot, 35 to 45 year old black man with a thin build and medium complexion, police said. He was wearing a dark long sleeve shirt and denim pants.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200.
