Police are searching for a man who sexually abused a female on a Forest Glen neighborhood sidewalk Wednesday morning on the Northwest Side.
The victim was walking east in the 4300 block of West Peterson Avenue, when the man walked up behind her and slapped her on the buttocks, police said. The man then ran away, but as the female proceeded to walk back west, he came back and fondled her genital and breast areas
Now that mosquitoes in portions of the northwest and southwest sides have tested positive for the West Nile virus spraying will take place overnight.
With the first reported human cases of the West Nile virus in the Chicago area, local health departments are taking no chances.
