BUFFALO GROVE (CBS) — A 57-year-old northwest suburban man has been charged with sexual assault and two counts of sexual abuse for two incidents involving 15-year-olds, police said.

According to Buffalo Grove police, a 15-year-old boy’s father reported to police over the weekend that his son was sexually abused by a male adult. The investigation determined that another 15-year-old, whose gender was not specified, was abused by the same adult. The incidents occurred between Aug. 8 and 19 in Buffalo Grove, police said.

The investigation led to Herbert Mallalieu Burgess, 57, of the 2300 block of South Lexington in Mount Prospect, according to Buffalo Grove police. He was charged with criminal sexual assault and two counts of criminal sexual abuse, according to police.

Burgess is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Waukegan on Aug. 31.

    only 3 comments, none of which contain racial/ethnic slurs. had this crime been commited by a minority there would be many times more comments, with plenty gratuitous name calling based on race/ethnicity or surnames. kinda sad if you think about it.

    i remember a recent episode of “what would you do?” where a bicycle was stolen by three subjects, one white female, one white male and one black male. the only person to be perceived as a criminal up to no good was the black male. i asked myself, why? the white male got some semi concerned looks from onlookers, but was otherwise not disturbed from his criminal act. the female white subject actually had someone asking if they could help cut the lock! the white female was not viewed as a threat and certainly not considered a criminal threat based on first impressions. but the black male was immediately pointed out as a thief when he attempted to “steal” the bicycle.

    this guy is a threat to society, regardless of skin color. he may well have scarred his victims for life to gratify his own perverted fantasies, but the underlying fact is nobody would have ever thought he was capable of it based on skin color. i’d bet the farm on it.

      @random, I think I can help you get it. Almost all violent crime in the city is commited by negros. The majority of thefts in the city are also commited by negros. After seeing these stories day, after day, after day, people tend to remember who is commiting the majority of crimes. It may seem like profiling, but it is nothing more than statistical probability.
