A woman was sexually assaulted in her car early Tuesday in the Lake View neighborhood on the North Side.

Around 12 a.m., the 25-year-old woman was walking to her car in the 1200 block of West Barry when a man approached her with a handgun, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

The man demanded her cash, then forced her into her car at gunpoint, police said. He assaulted her and ran away, police said.

He is described as a black man between 25 and 30 years old, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, 150 to 170 pounds, with short black hair, a short beard, scruff on his chin and a medium complexion, police said. He was wearing a brown or green sleeveless vest, a black buttoned shirt with white markings across the bottom and dark-colored pants.
