Police are pinning at least two rapes in the Lincoln Park neighborhood on a 59-year-old parolee who's been out of prison less than two months.

A convicted rapist released this summer after 30 years in prison wasn't wearing his state-mandated GPS monitor when he assaulted two more women recently, the Trib says.

The state Prison Review Board required Julius Anderson, 59, to be on GPS monitoring when he was released. But his Near West Side halfway house wasn't set up to handle GPS -- so they put him on less-stringent electronic monitoring.

Anderson stands charged with criminal sexual assault, aggravated kidnapping, home invasion and burglary in connection to a Sept. 1 rape in Lincoln Park, according to a Sun-Times report.

He is being held without bail.

According to the Trib, the offices of State's Atty. Anita Alvarez and Illinois Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan repeatedly asked the Illinois Department of Corrections not to release Anderson.

But he was released, and look at what he did.

Anderson allegedly sneaked up on a woman who was wearing headphones and held a knife to her throat. Anderson then reportedly forced her into her boyfriends nearby apartment, tied her up and sexually assaulted her for about an hour. The boyfriend was not home.

Cops were able to find Anderson’s because he swiped the woman’s cell phone after he was through with her at 4 a.m. He left the active phone in his pocket. 

The victim went Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment. Police said she wasn't cut during the attack.

Anderson is also a suspect in an August 15 rape at 1700 West Cornelia.
