BLOTTER: Quiet Night In The Neighborhood

We finally had a relatively quiet night in Wrigleyville and Boystown, with no beatings, robberies, or other thuggery to report for the first time this week.

Wednesday, October 9, 9:24PM
A tourist reported that a man flashed a gun at him near the CTA bus turn-around at Halsted and Belmont.

The alleged offender, last seen heading northbound on Halsted, was described as male, black, about 25 years old, 6'2" tall, wearing a dark green striped jacket, and blue jeans.

Officers were unable to locate the offender. A unit gave the tourist a ride to his hotel.

Police and fire personnel responded to Bonsai Bar, 3503 N. Halsted, after a bicyclist reportedly "ran into their front window." The biker was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

He hasn't slipped past security and taken a flight to Vegas yet, but it may be just a matter of time for one of Boystown's regular underage nightcrawlers.

Once again this morning, officers stopped a Rogers Park minor near Roscoe and Halsted for violating curfew. And, once again, they drove him to his residence on Touhy.

Unlike the last time he was stopped, the kid didn't make officers chase him down first.
