CHICAGO (STMW) — Authorities are releasing a sketch of a man who tried to sexually assault a woman Thursday morning in the Northwest Side Portage Park neighborhood.

The woman, 24, was walking in the 5100 block of West Grace Street about 11:35 a.m. when the man removed her clothing and tried to sexually assault her, Area North detectives said in a community alert.
