Police have issued a community alert for a man who sexually assaulted two teenage girls on Chicago's Southwest Side.

Police released a sketch of the man.

The crimes happened last week near 79th Street between Maplewood and Pulaski.

Last Thursday, the man forced a 17-year-old girl into a green minivan and assaulted her. The next day police say he forced a 16-year-old girl into the same vehicle at gunpoint and assaulted her.
