2nd alleged sex assault victim linked to River North bar El Hefe speaks out

CHICAGO (WLS) — A second woman says she was the victim of a sexual assault connected to River North bar El Hefe.

Liz Capra spoke about the incident with her attorneys Monday morning. She said she was drugged at El Hefe, then raped, in 2014.

“Part of me of course wants it to be over. Just like forget about, it’s over. But if I do that, it’s going to keep happening,” said Capra.

The mother of two now lives out of state. She returned to Chicago to meet with attorneys Monday and shared some documents associated with the case.

Capra said she went to the bar with friends to watch a Bears game, had one drink and then blacked out. She was separated from her friends and hours later, found herself banging on her door in Wicker Park after being robbed. She said a rape kit came back positive for sexual assault a year later, but then the investigation dead-ended.
