I want to pass along the good news that an offender has been arrested and charged with an attack on female victims near the Sauganash Trail.

After an exhaustive investigation by personnel from 17th District and the Detective Division, a juvenile offender, 17 years old, was arrested on October 10.  Felony charges were approved by the State's Attorneys Office.

Thanks to all of the Officers and Supervisors in the 17th District and the Detective Division, Area North, that relentlessly followed up on the investigation and to all the attention given to the community in the wake of these attacks.  Thanks also to the officers in the 16th District, the Helicopter Unit, and the Cook County Forest Preserve Police for their hard work and great help with this investigation.
