Police released surveillance footage Friday of a man who allegedly assaulted a woman on a Blue Line train last week.

The 22-year-old woman told police the incident happened about 6:15 p.m. on June 15, according to a community alert.

The suspect is described as a bald, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot 9 white man of a slender build and light complexion, the alert said.

Any one with information is asked to call Area Central detedctives at (312) 747-8380.
