A woman was sexually assaulted and robbed at gunpoint Sunday night in the North Center neighborhood.

At 9:10 p.m., the 31-year-old woman was walking south in the 4300 block of North Campbell when a male suspect approached her from behind, pulled out a handgun and demanded her property, according to a community alert from Area North detectives.
