Home Invasion/Woman Attacked Unincorporated West Chicago

At approximately 5:00 a.m. morning an unknown assailant attacked a woman in her home in the area of Ethel Street and Hickory Lane in unincorporated West Chicago.

The suspect is described as a male black with light skin, 30-40 years of age, and was wearing denim pants.  The Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone in the area to contact investigators if they observed anyone driving around the neighborhood between 4:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. this morning or if they observed a vehicle parked in the area that is normally not there.  Additionally, the suspect ran through yards west of Ethel Street toward Center Ave.  We are asking residents to please check their yards for any items the suspect may have dropped while fleeing the area.

Any resident in the sub-division that has a home surveillance system is urged to review its footage and report anything or anyone that is observed during the aforementioned time frame.  Additionally, please remember to lock your vehicles and home every night before turning in.

Please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 630-407-2400 with any information.
