JACK ASS: What Not To Do When Cops Tow Your Ride

A 19th district tactical officer was intrigued when she heard a report come out at 3:10 this morning of an attempted carjacking near Clark Street and Irving Park Road, just north of Wrigleyville.

The victim told officers that a male, Hispanic, 5'11" tall, 250 pounds, wearing a white t-shirt just tried to rob him of his car.

It just so happens that the description of the would-be carjacker is a nearly perfect match for a man from the far northwest side Dunning neighborhood whose car was towed by the tactical unit minutes earlier.

The known suspect was last seen eastbound on Irving Park Road from Clark Street. He was on foot, of course.

No police report was filed.

  1. I don't understand this story.

    Was it a false report of carjacking by the man whose own car was towed?

    If he was seen walking east from Clark Street on Irving Park Road, he has to be walking at least 2 blocks between the walls of the cemeteries on both sides with no place to hide...so why couldn't the cops nab him?

    Hello Anonymous,

    The attempted car jacking was bona fide. A tact officer realized that the description of the car jacking suspect matched that of the man whose car had been towed by police. The thought is that the person whose car was towed may have attempted to car jack his way back to Dunning.

  3. So can't the cops nab him for attempted carjacking when he goes to pick up his towed car?
