On June 15th at approximately 11:32 p.m. the female victim was on her way to meet a friend when she was confronted by the male suspect on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of North 93rd Street. The suspect identified himself as a plain clothes police officer working a sting in the area. The suspect asked the victim for her identification. The victim hesitated for a moment and actually started to walk away when the suspect confronted her again displaying a badge. The suspect then pushed the victim into a bushy area where she was sexually assaulted. After the assault the suspect fled in an unknown direction and remains at large.

the assault took place near an area of Aurora Avenue known for prostitution.
