BAD COMMUTE: Night Worker Told "Give Me All You Got"

At 12:45 this morning, a man who was walking to his late night job called 911 to report that a man approached him near Clark and Aldine, then put his arm around the caller's neck and said "give me all you got."

The caller began moving toward Halsted Street on Aldine and the man followed him, said he had a gun, and threatened to shoot the caller. The caller evaded the man and made it safely to a late-night business on Halsted Street where he called police.

The suspect is described as male, black in his 20's, thin, short curly hair, wearing a white t-shirt and dark pants.

Officers were given the call as "information for the police" rather than a call for police assistance, so it appears that no report will be filed at this time.

    Considering that the caller walks the streets late at night to get to work, it would seem that he may want to make a record of what happened.

    We hope that he will.

  3. Hey guys I have a quick question: I use a scanner app to listen in sometimes and something gas changed. I am unable to access the 19th district's dispatch feed. Listened to it for over a year, here and there and now it's just...gone. Citywide Chicago Police and Fire is always up of course but it helped to know what's happening directly in our hood. Anyone else had any problems tapping in with a Scanner app? Or can u point in another direction so I can listen in on what the crime blog folks are hearing? Thanks for your help and keep up the good fight!

    Hi Anonymous,

    Every "scanner" app that we know of taps into broadcastify.com for its audio--the apps simply stream the audio, they don't turn your phone into a radio receiver.. Broadcastify's 19/20 district feed has been offline for several weeks.

  5. " they don't turn your phone into a radio receiver.." LOL! Well, I guess I better take off my tin foil hat then because it's not helping with the reception and probably giving me cancer. No, seriously, I'm such a dope when it comes to this stuff. :)

    I liked to listen before I head off to work late at night. I seriously have to choose my route by whether or not I feel there will be a total shit-show going on at the red line. This blog helps a lot as well. Thanks!

    P.S. You think CPD cut the 19/20 feed on purpose?

    1. It wasn't a service of the cpd. Someone provided the feed to broadcastify. That would be a delightful conspiracy theory, tho. lol. Thanks for reading cwb!
