CHICAGO (WLS) — A woman was sexually assaulted by a man who entered her Logan Square apartment Wednesday, Chicago police said.

The assault occurred in the vicinity of Armitage and Mozart avenues at about 9:50 a.m., police said.

The suspect entered the woman’s apartment and sexually assaulted her before he walked off northbound toward Armitage Avenue, police said.

Police said the man is in his 20s to 30s and was wearing a hooded green camouflage jacket with black stripes on the left sleeve as well as black shorts and crocs.

Neighborhood residents reacted to the brazen crime.

“As a woman, it’s always very scary to hear about something like that happening,” resident Morgan Reed said.

“I’m just hopeful that everyone’s safe who’s involved and that person involved with it is doing OK and their family is taking the steps that they need,” resident Michael Moore said.

Police are asking neighbors to be aware of their surroundings as Area Five detectives continue to investigate.

Meanwhile, as police continue to investigate, a community remains on edge.

“It’s scary for sure,” Northwest Side resident Andie Franco. “I know that it can happen anywhere, everywhere. It’s scary.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Area Five detectives at (312) 746-6554.
