CHICAGO (CBS) — A woman who lives near Lincoln Square says she is afraid to walk by herself – at least for now – because of an incident that happened over the weekend just blocks from her home. And now there’s word of another incident in that neighborhood.
It was late Saturday afternoon and 28-year-old Meryl Williams was walking in the 25-hundred block of West Eastwood.
All of a sudden, a man riding a bicycle on the sidewalk rode by her – and groped her.
“I didn’t even hear this bicycle behind me – and I know they’re not supposed to ride on the sidewalk. This guy passed me on his bike, on my left, and he just – I didn’t even hear him.
“All of a sudden I felt someone grab my butt. And then he just sped off.
