CHICAGO — Cops said they're looking for a man who attacked a teen girl and a woman after they got off buses in the Humboldt Park neighborhood earlier this week. 

In the first incident, which happened in the 1700 block of North Pulaski Road about 5:15 p.m. Monday, a 17-year-old was walking north on Pulaski Road after getting off a bus when a man came up to her from behind and put a hand over her mouth, according to a community alert from police.

He forced her into an alley and he fondled her before running off when the girl screamed and resisted him, according to the alert.

The next day, about 8:20 p.m., a 19-year-old woman got off a bus and walked west on Grand Avenue when a man approached her from behind, put his hands around her neck and forced her to the ground in the 4200 block of West Grand, the alert said.

But a passing car distracted him, and the woman was able to fight him off, according to the alert. He then took off, cops said.

According to cops, the assailant was described in both cases as a Hispanic man 20 to 25 years old, 5 feet to 5-foot-3 tall and weighing 120 to 130 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red, white and black hat with ear flaps and hanging strings along with a black puffy jacket and black pants, according to the alert.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 312-744-8261.
