Chicago police are investigating an attack on two women on the city's Northwest Side.

One of the victims was sexually assaulted in the attack, which took place earlier this month in the 2600-block of North Kedzie.

Police said a man grabbed both women from behind and pulled them into an alley. Police say he robbed them and sexually assaulted one of them at gunpoint.

The suspect is about 25-years old with a shaved head. He wore large stud earrings and a black pea coat that had buttons with anchors on them.

Police urge people in this area to be aware of surroundings and report any suspicious people or activities.
