A Loyola student, 21, was inappropriately touched by an unknown person at West Devon Avenue and Sheridan Road near Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus Nov. 6 around 8:00 p.m., according to the Chicago Police Department (CPD).

The offender, described as a male, approximately 40-45 years old and around 5-feet-4-inches tall, escaped on West Sheridan Road according to CPD News Affairs Officer Christine Calace. The offender was described as wearing ripped blue jeans, a black coat with a hood, sunglasses and a piercing in his nose.
