Two teens were sexually assaulted on Chicago’s South Side this week, police said.
The first incident took place around 7:30 p.m. Monday in the 600 block of East 75th Street, according to a community alert issued by police.
A 16-year-old girl was walking home when a man attempted to make conversation with her. When she refused to speak, the girl was forced into an alley where she was then sexually assaulted, police said.
The offender was described as a black man with dark complexion, between the ages of 20 and 25, around 6 feet tall, weighing between 170 and 185 pounds.
The man was wearing dark blue baggy jeans and white Air Force One gym shoes, police said.
In a second incident just two days later, a 19-year-old woman was attacked while jogging just after midnight in the 6500 block of South Artesian Avenue.
The woman was approached by a man who was wearing a black hoodie to conceal his face, the community alert said.
He displayed a handgun and forced the victim into a gangway where she was then sexually assaulted, police said.
The offender was described as a black man, 5-foot-1 to 5-foot-3, weighing between 140 and 160 pounds. Police said the man was wearing a black hooded sweater with letters on the front.
Anyone with information surrounding either incident is being asked to call Area Central Detectives at (312) 747-8380.
