A man was charged with sexually assaulting a 29-year-old woman last weekend in Lake View, just over a year after he was accused of trying to sexually abuse a woman on a Red Line train.

Antoine Jackson, 28, punched the 29-year-old, threatened her with a gun and sexually assaulted her about 3:45 a.m. Sunday in the backyard of a home in the 3200 block of North Kenmore Avenue, according to Chicago police.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count each of aggravated robbery and kidnapping, Chicago police said.

The woman was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment.

The alleged attack happened months after Jackson was sentenced to two years probation for robbing a 24-year-old woman on a Red Line train on the North Side in January 2020, Cook County court records show.

Jackson was also accused of exposing himself to the 24-year-old and beating her after she tried to move away, but court records show that prosecutors dropped those charges after he pleaded guilty to the robbery.

Jackson is due in court on the new charges Saturday.
