Man on bike grabbing women in the street in RP

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly. I yelled, "I see you and I'm going to report what you just did!" He raised his right arm and without turning...

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly. I yelled, "I see you and I'm going to report what you just did!" He raised his right arm and without turning around, gave me the finger. I asked another man who was walking to his car on N. Newgard Ave if he had seen the cyclist (he hadn't). I said, loudly, "He just grabbed me as he rode past." When the man on the bike heard me say this, he raised both hands in the air and gave me two fingers (while still riding the bike). Then he rode out of eyesight, heading north on N. Newgard Ave.

The man on the bike who grabbed me appeared to be Caucasian, mid-20s to 40 years old, with a slim build. He was wearing dark pants, possibly black jeans, a black jacket (zip up with no hood), sneakers, and a wool hat. The hat looked to be dark blue, possibly with a stripe around it. He was riding a black BMX style bike that appeared to be a bit too small for him.

I filed a police report on this incident and I'm also going to report it to the Alderman's office.

Please keep an eye out around Rogers Park for an individual fitting this description; in particular, a man who appears to be wearing a lot of dark clothing, given the warm weather, and riding a BMX-style bike. He was pretty bold to do this in the middle of the day, in broad daylight. I'm concerned about what he might get up to after dark. Women walking around Rogers Park should be careful, and keep an eye on your surroundings. If an incident occurs, call 911.

    @Mad About RP - But since you asked, previous posts have pointed out your cherry-picking of the statutes. I reread the posts and your replies and have to agree with Joan M.

    Thank you for asking!

    @Mad About RP - You wrote: "I realize this is a narritive [sic] wrecker for you"

    Not sure what NARRATIVE you think you are wrecking. The issue is one of whether the offense is battery or if it is a sexually oriented crime. Based on the description by the OP, the alleged crime was not sexual in nature.

    That really is all there is to the matter no matter how many references you make to the statutes you believe are relevant.
