CHICAGO — A woman saved by officers who walked into her Lincoln Park apartment as she was being raped told police another man had accompanied her attacker in Thursday night's break-in, authorities said.

Police initially went to the unit because the 28-year-old victim's wallet was reported lying on a back porch outside the apartment building in the 1100 block of West Dickens. When the officers entered the woman's apartment, they saw her being sexually assaulted in her own bed, police said.
