CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for sexually assaulting a Chicago Transit Authority employee at gunpoint as she walked home from work.

Twenty-one-year-old Devonte Willis pleaded guilty Monday.

The attack took place as the woman left the Red Line’s 63rd Street station on the South Side.

According to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, Willis robbed the woman at gunpoint and then sexually assaulted her.

Police arrested him several hours later and found the woman’s cell phone in his possession.

Prosecutors say DNA evidence also linked him to the crime.
