OF NOTE: A Few Notable Items From The Weekend

7:42PM Sunday
Police are called to the Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted, after a woman wanted for battering a man there one week ago is spotted.

It is not clear if police located the suspect, who is described as female, white, 20 years-old, wearing a gray hoodie and pink/white pants.

Three other individuals who were said to be involved in last week's battery were arrested when they returned to the center shortly after it opened last Monday morning.

5:49PM Saturday
Three people are seen breaking the windows of an apartment building on Barry Avenue east of Broadway. The offenders, described as three men, black, one wearing a black jacket; one wearing a jean jacket; and one wearing a brown jacket with a gray backpack, cannot be found when officers arrived. The incident is recorded as criminal damage to property in CPD case #HW508444.

Tis The Season
Also this week, several calls came in about thefts of packages in the area of Grace and Pine Grove. CWB reported on one case last Monday.

Later in the week, a passer-by on Pine Grove found several "suspicious packages" on the street. Police arrived and concluded that the collection of open UPS and FedEx packages had been stolen from an apartment building in the 600 block of Grace, then emptied of their contents on Pine Grove.

A manager at the Grace Street apartment told officers that they have video of the thief in action and this week's incident was not the first time that he had targeted the building.

This is something to keep in mind as we head into the holiday shipping season. Criminals like to work indoors during cold weather, too.

  1. Hey CWB, kinda surprised there wasn't even a mention of that huge fire on Clark St on Friday. Not a crime, but a rather large incident.

  2. Fire is not a crime (unless arson) so there's no reason that it would be on this blog.

  3. But if it wasn't a crime, why would it be on a crime blog?

  4. Regarding the UPS packages -- Pretty much everyday I see a big brown UPS truck parked on Pine Grove just north of Sheridan between 5:00 and 5:15PM. He must make regular deliveries to one of the highrises on Pine Grove. I have always thought how regular his route is -- because I see him there at the same time every business day.

    It looks like somebody else caught on to his schedule too.
