CHICAGO — A woman was hospitalized after she was sexually assaulted early Sunday morning in Lakeview, police said.
The 24-year-old woman was entering her apartment in the 400 block of West Belmont Avenue about 4:15 a.m. when a man approached her from behind, forced himself inside the apartment, sexually assaulted her and then fled, police said in community warning issued Monday.
She was later taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital, though her condition is unknown.
Police described the offender as black, in his early 30s, 6-feet tall, 180-190 pounds and wearing black jeans and dark long-sleeve T-shirt. The alert said he "has a well defined scar running down left cheek."
