Chicago police: Man wanted for assaulting 2 women walking down the street

Chicago police are searching for a man who they say kicked a woman and punched another near downtown earlier this month.

On Jan. 5, around 1:55 p.m., police say a 50-year-old woman was crossing the street in the 0-100 block of E. Ontario Street when the male suspect punched her with a closed fist to her right jaw.

He continued walking westbound on Ontario and about 10 minutes later, a 38-year-old woman was crossing the street when he allegedly kicked her in the lower left leg.

Both attacks were unprovoked, police said.
