CHICAGO (STMW) — Police are looking for a man who allegedly approached a teen girl and fondled her on an Orange Line train last week.

The 15-year-old girl was riding the Orange Line about 4:40 p.m. on Jan. 8 when a man stood behind her and began rubbing her buttocks, according to a release from police News Affairs.

The girl told the man stop to move away and he stopped, the release said. The girl got off the train at 35th and Archer and told police.

Officers tried to apprehend the man at the next train stop, but he fled, the release said.

Police describe the man as white, between 55-60 years old, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8 with white hair. He was wearing a tan jacket and black shoes.

Anyone with information should contact Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
