The Police Don't Care About Street Harassment

Today, I was walking to the Ashland/Lake train stop and talking on my phone. As I was walking, out of nowhere, a 5'10-ish and roughly 220 lbs. African American man in his mid 30s with dreads and a Blackhawks jersey came and slapped me on my bum - REALLY HARD. Like so hard I think it left marks.

I looked at him, dumbfounded. He laughed, grabbed himself, then said, "mmm - nice and juicy."

I thought he may have been trying to steal my wallet or purse, but it turns out that he was just a sick pervert.

After calling the Chicago Police Dept. and telling them there was a perv roaming the streets, they basically told me to go cry myself a river - they don't care. Lovely.
