Man groped woman at Loyola University, police say

CHICAGO -- A man is accused of groping a woman on Loyola University's Rogers Park campus earlier this month.

Soroush Aflaki, 22, was charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery in a public place, according to Chicago police.

Aflaki, of the 6900-block of North Greenview, was positively identified as the person who "inappropriately touched" a woman as she was walking in the 6300 block of North Winthrop on Sept. 19, police said. He is scheduled to appear in bond court Friday.

There were three other instances of women being groped on or near the Loyola campus in recent weeks, police previously said.

About 10 p.m. Sept. 6, a student was walking in the 6500 block of North Kenmore when she felt someone touch her buttocks, according to a Monday community alert from Area North detectives. When she turned around, the suspect was riding away on a bicycle.

Another student had left the campus library about 12:30 a.m. Sept. 7 and was walking home in the 6300 block of North Winthrop when a man rode up behind her on a bicycle and touched her buttocks, police said. He rode past her a second time and touched her breast before riding off north on Winthrop.

A faculty member was walking to campus about 9:05 a.m., also on Sept. 7, in the 1600 block of West Greenleaf when a man on a bicycle grabbed her buttocks before riding off, police said.
