CHICAGO — A 15-year-old girl walking in Garfield Park Monday night was knocked to the ground and sexually assaulted by one or two males who followed her in a car, police said.
The girl was walking in the 3600 block of West Jackson Boulevard at 7:30 p.m. when a teen or man walked up and tried to start a conversation with her, police said. The girl ignored him and kept walking.
Then the driver of a tan car pulled up next to the girl, and the driver and possibly someone else got out, walked up to her and tried to talk to her, police said. The girl ignored them both, and at least one of them grabbed her, pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her, police said.
Afterward, the attacker or attackers drove away in the tan car, police said.
The attackers were described as black teens or men who were 17-18 years old and 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall, police said. One of them was missing two of his bottom front teeth and had brown eyes, thick eyebrows and short, curly, black hair.
One of the attackers wore blue jeans with silver zippers, and one wore black jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt, black Air Force 1 shoes and possibly a light blue shirt, police said.
Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call police at 312-744-8200.
