8:00am - Wednesday July 10, 2013 - A community alert was issued Tuesday July 9th for Ukrainian Village and the surrounding areas following a sexual assault at Western Avenue and Augusta. Chicago Police have said the woman was at the bus stop enclosure at Western Avenue and Augusta -- near the border of Humboldt Park and the Ukrainian Village neighborhoods-- when the suspect attacked her at approximately 5 a.m. Monday.

According to a report published by ABC, the man then dragged the victim to a nearby gangway where he beat and sexually assaulted her.

Guardian Angels were on Western Avenue close to the incident Tuesday warning residents to take their headphones off and be more aware.

Chicago police describe the suspect as a black male between 19 and 26 years old and clean shaven. At the time of the attack, they say he was wearing diamond stud earrings in both ears, along with a green t-shirt, green shorts, black shoes and a black bandanna.

Police are advising female residents in the area to be alert and to walk in pairs early in the morning and at night.

Anyone with information should contact Chicago Police.
