Apparent Serial Sexual Assaulter Arrested For 2007 CTA Incident
Logan Square resident Noor Jalil, of the 2400 block of North Kedzie Avenue, was arrested once more in connection with a 2007 event, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
In late 2014, Jalil was accused of masturbating on or groping three women on the Red and Blue Lines, including one who was seven months pregnant at the time. He faces charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault and aggravated battery, and is currently free on bond for the three 2014 charges.
The 2007 event came to light when investigators successfully matched Jalil’s semen with evidence taken from one of the more recent attacks. The Sun-Times said Jalil was accused of pressing against and ejaculating on a 24-year-old woman back in 2007.
Jalil turned himself in to police last week.
FBI Offers Reward For ‘Bandage Bandit’ Bank Robber
The FBI announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the so-called Bandage Bandit‘s arrest. The man is suspected in four bank robberies across the city in April alone. His latest strike was at the PNC Bank at 2300 N. Western Ave., while his previous suspected robberies were outside the neighborhood.
The Bandage Bandit, so nicknamed because he applied a bandage on his face for two of the robberies, is described as black, 6 feet tall, and in his late 40s with a medium build.
In the robberies, the man demands money from bank employees while threatening to harm them and their customers. The FBI said there have not been any injuries thus far.
