Search For Area Sexaul Predator Continues

Chicago Police have released an official alert regarding the sexual offender we first posted about on 8/21. Recent attacks or attempted attacks that have occurred in Edgewater, Rogers Park, Uptown and Lakeview are being attributed to this same individual. The suspect reportedly approaches victims from behind and makes unwanted physical contact with them. The male offender is in his 20s to early 30s, between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall and of medium build with brown hair and brown eyes. If you have any information about these crimes or the suspect, you are urged to contact Belmont Area detectives at (312)744-8261.

Ladies, please continue to be careful out there!

A source also provided us with the following unconfirmed account of a potential sighting of the offender….

“Just FYI – our neighbor saw the man suspected of the sexual attacks on women south of Ridge. He was parked in a white Mazda MPV minivan (older model) at the corner of Norwood and Greenview this past Thursday (the rainy day) at 2:30 p.m. He got out of the car and was naked from the waist down.

She was able to get the license number which she said is: IL 693 2090 (99% sure of). Others on our block (1500 Norwood) remember seeing this van recently parked on nearby streets.”
