CHICAGO—An Edgewater man is jailed on $350,000 bond, charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old runaway.
Prosecutors say 23-year-old LaVelle Scott met the girl at a party Friday, four days after she left her home in Lombard. Scott reportedly invited her to his apartment in the 1000 block of West Hollywood. When she became uneasy and left early Saturday, prosecutors say Scott pulled her into a parking garage and assaulted her.
Police responding to a report of the attack say Scott resisted arrest and was tasered.
