The caper of the day comes from a citizen who claimed that three men jumped him and tried to steal his dog in the 3700 block of N. Pine Grove.

The would-be dognappers, last seen running eastbound on Grace Street, are described as three male, Hispanics:
1) 5'10" 140 pounds, wearing a yellow basketball jersey with white trim and khakis
2) 5'8" tall, 150 pounds, t-shirt, jeans, with a mohawk.
3) 5'8" tall, 150 pounds, t-shirt, jeans

The incident is recorded as an attempted strongarm robbery under CPD case #HW401115.

A concerned citizen called 911 to report the smell of a dead body emanating from an apartment at Addison and Pine Grove. The first officer on-scene asked for another officer to stop by in order to get a second opinion on the smell. The second officer arrived, sniffed, and summoned the fire department to assist with entering the unit.

Once inside, the officers were able to report "good news and bad news." The good news is that there was no dead body. The bad news is that "someone is living in that filth."

  1. I feel bad for anyone who has to walk a dog in this dangerous neighborhood. If you got your pet(might as well be a child to some of us) taken away the police would treat it like a property theft. Little would be done.

  2. Wow. I'm way to boring to be out at 1:45am but is there that big of a market for that many to be hookers next to Leona's?

  3. Come on people don't lose sight of things, police indifference is not the issue, they are hamstrung by spineless brass, self hating constituencies and a worthless States attorney.

  4. Just saw Prince Tunney on WGN giggling about how great the police presence is while on his midnight walk. It's obvious he even knows he's lying.

    1. I'm sure Tunney is "Pack'n a piece"

    I was out last night (Friday) and tonight (Saturday). Friday night, there were tons of police out. It looked like they set up a mobile station on Clark Street (former CTA bus converted to a giant police vehicle). There were also lots of police on Halsted Friday night. I went to Market Days today and left just as it was getting dark. I only saw one police officer earlier this afternoon/evening, but there are probably a lot more out now. Anyone out tonight should not be out alone and should watch how much they have to drink.

    Hi Twister Contestant,

    Good advice about traveling with friends and in groups if you find yourself in the area, particularly side streets and Belmont, tonight.

    There is a big old vehicle over on Clark. Maybe that's the one you're speaking of? It's used to process people who get busted for ordinance violations. It's a one-stop shop for photos, fingerprint check, administrative hearing, and payment of fines (credit cards cheerfully accepted!).

    Be safe! Thanks for being a part of CWB!

  7. Tonight (or any night for that matter) isn't a good night to take a shortcut through the alleys either.
