UPDATES: Stolen Car Found; COH Battery Suspect Eludes Police (Again)

Stolen from the 700 block of Barry (bottom pin) on Sunday
morning, the vehicle was found tonight under the L tracks
behind the 4000 block of Kenmore (top pin).
Officers have located a car that was stolen from the 700 block of Barry on Sunday morning.

A suburban woman had left her vehicle's keys in the car, which was quickly swiped by a member of the Lake View "welcoming committee."

The 2008 Honda CRV with a University of Iowa license plate frame was found under the L tracks in the 4000 block of North Kenmore around 6:10 this evening.

Police have not had nearly as much luck in catching up with a woman wanted for her alleged involvement in a recent battery at the Center on Halsted.

A 911 caller reported that the heavy-set white female suspect returned to the Center on Halsted around 3 o'clock this afternoon. She was not on-scene when officers arrived.

This is at least the the second time that witnesses at the Center have reported the woman's return to police. She also managed to leave before police arrived on Sunday evening.

Three men who are accused of participating in the battery were arrested when they returned to the Center on Halsted on the morning after the incident.
