I just want to let everyone know to be on the lookout for this person. My daughter was just chased on August 3 by the same person. He chased her in our yard and held a gun on her. My husband ran outside and chased him down the block but lost him. I am so glad my daughter is ok and I am so sad for his other victims. Please keep a eye out.

Don't forget that a man in a ski mask and black hood attacked a young mother holding her 7 month old baby on July 19 at around midnight after the fiesta in Midlothian. That one didn't hit the news...

this should be on the news so people can be on the lookout for this person. This person has now went after 3 women in the area of Abbotsford and st Louis and #45th. I want to get this person off the street.

I live right where the attack occurred, and actually helped the young girl. I've been here 28 years and have never had anything happen like this before. We need to catch this guy! Just really glad the girl was ok and we chased the guy off.

I am glad to find out about this. I wonder if they could post this stuff on the village website. Or maybe the only way to let us know about it is through the news. Maybe they could put some security cameras in the parking at the Metra. Emergency calls go to Blue Island so I don't know who would see the video feed if there were a problem.

No they won't post it on their Website. They should have the Midlothian version of the Gaurdian Angels patrol at night up and down the streets there. Walking a neighborhood to burn off their FAT during the day won't help.

I am a female myself and live around this area I'm very concerned... The mother with the baby does she live near train station also? This is very alarming why does he have to hurt them?
Oh Really

Midlothian doesn't want any one to know what goes on. Lets just keep it a secret. so more people can get hurt. May be if all knew they could of all been aware. working off the fat could help get out of a car once in a while. Instead of all the cops and cars being at the station?

just make sure he is ran over a few times, then run his family or who ever he is living with out of town, a gallon of kerosene will do the job.

I live in the area and I am very concerned I think the person who is doing this lives in the area and is scoping people out so lets get the word out so we can all protect ourselves and others and I do not think Midlothian is a shit hole I think the area I live in is awesome and talking about the police is wrong I think they do a great job!!!!!

I wonder if there was any information about the attackers height or weight that could help.You never know,anything no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential could help an investigation.People may have noticed somebody walking around that seemed suspicious or just out of place.Pay attention,any tips might help.I've lived in Posen for 60 years & I always thought Midlothian was a great place.These scumbags are attacking people everywhere,not just Midlothian.So this person from Bolingbrook is sitting on his high,exalted throne & passing his unfair & classless judgement on Midlothian,huh? I suggest that he pay attention to his own town & the crime statistics there!
