A 24-year-old woman was robbed and sexually assaulted last month behind her Humboldt Park neighborhood apartment building on the West Side, police said.

The attacker is described as a Hispanic man between 18 and 23 years old, standing between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-9 and weighing between 165 and 185 pounds, the alert said. He has hazel eyes and short hair tied in a ponytail, with a small birthmark on his right cheek, police said.

He was wearing a black puffy coat, a black brimmed knit cap and dark pants, police said.
