This story was updated on July 2, 2020.


(STMW) --  Charges were dismissed against a Chicago man who had been accused of sexually assaulting his co-worker in north suburban Evanston.

According to court documents, the case was dropped by Cook County prosecutors on June 11, 2020.

Sulaimon Adigun, 24, was charged with criminal sexual assault in April of 2014, according to the Cook County Sheriff's office website and Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

Adigun was at work—a facility that assists people with mental disabilities—in the 1400 block of Elmwood Avenue in Evanston on March 29 when he started having sexual conversations with his 19-year-old co-worker, Parrott said.

The woman walked away, but Adigun followed her and got aggressive, eventually fondling her, Parott said. She demanded he stop and walked away.

After "several" similar encounters throughout the day, Adigun followed the woman when she went to the basement of the building about 3 p.m., pulled her down and sexually assaulted her, Parrott said.
