Police question person of interest over series of groped incidents in Loop, South Loop


CHICAGO (SCS) — Chicago police questioned a person of interest in a series of groped incidents in the City Loop and South Loop.

Police say a man on a one-wheeled motorized skateboard assaulted at least two women and then drove off.

CBS 2 spoke with two other women who say they were also assaulted.

These are just a few of the people who have come forward. Many others have posted their experiences online, and they fear that if this person is not detained, there could be many more.

The incidents documented by Chicago police occurred on the morning of August 6 in the 1100 block of South State Street and June 1 in the 400 block of West Lake Street at around the same time of day.

Both incidents involved a man wearing a white helmet, sunglasses, a backpack and a single-wheel electric skateboard. Both times he approached women and grabbed their buttocks and genitals.
