Man charged with sexually assaulting teen on train

 CHICAGO (AP) -- A Chicago parolee has been charged with sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl at knifepoint on a train.

   The Chicago Tribune  reports that 55-year-old Earl Cowen faces charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault with a weapon.  At the time of his arrest he was being sought on a parole violation warrant.

   The teenager told police she was on a Blue Line train bound for downtown Chicago late Saturday when a man sat behind her and told her he'd kill her if she did not give him money.

   She said he displayed a Swiss army knife and sexually assaulted her with his hand.

   Police responding to a 911 call of a sexual assault on a train arrested Cowen nearby. The paper reports the teen later identified him as her attacker.
