A 39-year-old woman sexually assaulted in broad daylight last Friday afternoon. Police said a man followed her into her building, grabbing her, throwing her head against the wall before sexually assaulting her.

 Hours later, on Saturday, around 3:30 in the morning that same man attacked again, following a 36-year-old woman entering her building, grabbing her and putting a black bag over her head. Police said she fought him, screaming and he then ran off.

With the first attack, weeks earlier on April 11, the man got into a building, knocking on a 36-year-old woman’s door asking if she knew if someone lived in the building. He eventually tried to force himself into her home. When he failed, police said he pepper-sprayed her before running from her building.

He’s described as a 170 pound man, between 5’6″ and 5’10” wearing dark clothing and a surgical mask.

The Chicago police said no one is in custody and they’re still investigating.
