A DePaul student walking downtown was incapacitated with a noxious substance, dragged into an SUV and sexually assaulted and robbed last night, according to a Public Safety alert. He escaped from the vehicle and offenders fled in an unknown direction. 

According to the alert, the attack occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Friday at Congress Avenue and Wabash Street, about two blocks south of DePaul’s Loop campus and a block east of University Center.

In a separate incident, a female DePaul student was the victim of a strong armed robbery in Lincoln Park early Saturday morning. The student was walking west on Belden Avenue near Fremont Street shortly after midnight when she was approached from behind. The offender grabbed her purse and fled east.

Anyone with information on these incidents is encouraged to call Chicago Police or Public Safety.
