Cook County Sheriff’s police responded about 6:46 PM Sunday to a report of an attempted sexual assault in Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village, IL. Cook County Sheriff’s police report that a female jogger used pepper spray as self-defense to fight off a man who attacked her Sunday while she was jogging in the Busse Woods forest preserve just north of Higgins Road between Elk Grove Village and Schaumburg.

Cook Sheriff’s police report that a man attempted to sexually assault a 31-year-old woman who was jogging near Grove No. 4 of Busse Woods. Grove 4 is located just north of Higgins Road (Route 72) about half way between Arlington Heights Road and I-290/IL-53.

The woman had pepper spray and used it on her attacker. She was then able to run away and call police. She was treated for minor injuries at an area hospital and released.

The offender was described as male, white in his early 30s, approximately 6’0” to 6’3” tall and clean shaven. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.

Cook County Sheriff’s police alerted area police departments at about 7:05 p.m. Sunday about the attack, but described the attack location as Grove 27, which is near Arlington Heights Road and Landmeier Road in Elk Grove Village. Accompanying that alert was a description that the offender was described as a male/white subject, 20-30 years-old, 5’8″, medium to heavy build, wearing a dark-colored hoodie sweatshirt, and gray pants.

The sheriff’s office did not alert the general public about the attack until Monday — about 22 hours after the reported attack Sunday evening. The sheriff’s office does not post real-time crime activity alerts on Twitter or Facebook, and uses military-grade secret encrypted radios that can not be monitored by the media or neighborhood watch groups.

Sheriff Dart has directed an increase in Sheriff’s Police patrols in the area and is coordinating an enhanced presence by the Cook County Forest Preserve Police Department.

Sheriff Dart asks anyone with information to call Sheriff’s Police at 708-865-4896.

Cardinal Note: Police incidents related to the above police agency are not reported in real time or within a prompt time period. Police protecting their realm of investigation and police activity, have chosen to use secret military-grade encrypted radios to withhold their police communications, which were previously open to the public and news media via monitoring of public safety scanning radios — with no known negative results locally.

The delayed knowledge or entirely blacked out knowledge resulting from encrypted police communications may protect certain police operations and investigations, but it also puts the public at risk in situations such as when armed and dangerous offenders are at large and when other similar situations occur, such as when desperate offenders of property crimes are eluding police. In other cases, the delayed or blacked out information inhibits or prohibits the possibility of the public providing early witness accounts before a criminal trail goes cold. Citizens are much more likely to recognize or recall suspicious or criminal activity if they are aware of the criminal incident within minutes or hours of its occurrence. The most serious incident involving dire results would be a trail that is allowed to go cold in the case of child abduction.

The lack of real time information from public police dispatch also weakens an effective neighborhood watch program mostly working to prevent property loss, but also working to prevent possible violent crimes.

Lack of real time information from police dispatch also delays public awareness or eliminates public awareness of general hazards and traffic or other situations in every day living in an otherwise economically thriving community.

Police have alternate ways to transmit tactical, operational or investigative information, while still keeping their main public dispatch channels open for the best balance of public safety and police safety.
