Arrest made in sexual attack on jogger on South Side lakefront bike path


A female jogger was pulled off the Lakefront Trail bike path Sunday evening and sexually accosted, Cook County prosecutors said in court Tuesday.

Louis Johnson, 28, was identified by the 27-year-old woman as the man who grabbed her by the knees as she ran past him about 5:55 p.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of South Lake Shore Drive, according to Assistant State's Attorney Ed Murillo.

Johnson pushed her to the side of the trail, pinned her down and repeatedly threatened to kill her, according to prosecutors and Chicago police.

After several minutes, a passerby saw the two on the ground, then observed Johnson stand, pull up his pants and leave the area without a shirt on. The witness approached the woman, who said she had been assaulted, Murillo said. The witness called police.
