Police Warn Of Girls Being Sexually Abused On NW Side

CHICAGO (STMW) – Police issued an alert on Wednesday after two teenage girls were fondled by someone who approached them in separate incidents on the Northwest Side.

    What happened to curfew? I thought curfew was supposed to help combat things like this. Am I wrong here?

    I’d like to know how the hell does someone get close enough to you to be ABLE to touch you and then they just drive away?! Especially a stranger? Wouldn’t you yell or try to run away?! It doesn’t seem like he forced them anywhere or tied them up. This seems like bulls*%t to me.
