A Description....and a Sketch??
- A search is underway for a man police are calling “very dangerous” after they say he stabbed and sexually assaulted a woman during a home invasion Saturday afternoon in southwest suburban Willowbrook.
The victim, a woman in her 20s, was loading her vehicle in a driveway in the 700 block of 73rd Court at 1:11 p.m. Saturday when a dark blue Nissan Altima, possibly a 2006, pulled up and a man approached her and asked for money, Willowbrook police said during a news conference Sunday.
She refused and went into the home, but the man began knocking on a side door and asking to use her phone. He then forced his way inside, where a struggle ensued and she was stabbed multiple times with an unknown sharp object, police said.
Additionally, Deputy Chief Mark Altobella confirmed there were reports of her being sexually assaulted and said he has heard nothing to doubt those reports. The woman remains in intensive care at a local hospital, her family said.
And the story provides a detailed description along with a sketch artist's drawing of the offender. It's been a long time since we've seen anything like that. We're sure Jesse is drafting a letter to the editor right now.
