Police are looking for a man who grabbed and sexually assaulted a teenage girl earlier this month on the West Side.

The man approached a 16-year-old girl walking to school in the 3900 block of West Ohio and asked for her age and phone number at 7:30 a.m. April 10, according to a community alert from Area North detectives. When the girl did not respond, he grabbed her by the arm and side, pulled her into a lot between two parked trucks and sexually assaulted her.

The suspect is described as a 20- to 23-year-old black man with a dark complexion, brown eyes and black hair, police said.

He is described as 5-feet-10, 175 pounds and told the girl his name was “Lil C,” the alert said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
