    Police are warning Chicago residents after a man attempted to sexually assault a 17-year-old woman while she was sleeping in a bedroom on the city’s Southwest Side.

    The incident happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday in the 4200 block of Washtenaw Avenue in the Brighton Park neighborhood, police said.

    A man entered through an unlocked door and attempted to sexually assault the teen while she was sleeping, according to a community alert issued by police.

    Police are asking anyone with information to call Area Central Detectives at (312) 747-8380.
