Highland Park Police responded about 3:23 a.m. Sunday August 13, 2017 to a report of an assault of a woman in the block of 2300 Green Bay Road.
According to Highland Park police, the woman reported that she was approached by a man she knows, who made sexual advances. When she declined, he grabbed her from behind and pulled her into the street, according to the report.
The woman reported to police that while she was being pulled into the street by the man, a motorist traveling on Green Bay Road witnessed the attack and began honking the horn and flashing bright vehicle headlights.
