Police: Woman attacked on CTA Red Line train near Wilson
Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman, 55, on a CTA Red Line train in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police now say a reported sexual assault on a CTA Red Line train in the city's Uptown neighborhood last week is "unfounded."

A woman told police that she was sexually assaulted while riding near the Wilson station in the 4600-block of North Broadway around 11 p.m. June 16.

Police now say that woman's story is not true as a result of a lack of video evidence. They also say she kept changing her story.
