A man wanted in connection with the assault and robbery of a woman Sunday morning in the Bucktown neighborhood turned himself in overnight.

The man was in police custody after turning himself in at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday at the Wentworth District police station, 5101 S. Wentworth Ave., according to Chicago Police.

About 3:25 a.m. Sunday, the man followed the 23-year-old woman from the CTA Blue Line stop at North and Damen avenues, police said.

He pulled her into a gangway in the 1600 block of North Bell Avenue, where he beat, robbed and disrobed her, police said.

Police released surveillance images of the suspect shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday, about four hours before he turned himself in.

Charges had not been filed as of Wednesday morning and Area Central detectives were investigating, police said.
