A keen-eyed citizen called 911 when he saw a "suspicious man" apparently trying to break into a building near Cornelia and Broadway around 9:30 Monday night.
Officers caught up with the 50-something perp and took him into custody minutes later at Cornelia and Lake Shore Drive.
Case number is HW511211. Nicely done, officers and caller!
Another citizen thought they saw something suspicious near Wrigley Field this morning: A man peddling along on a bike with a giant bolt cutter in one hand. Officers interviewed the biker at Addison and Halsted. He was sent on his way and officers made a record of the contact.
This guy again? Police were called at 3:25 this afternoon after a resident saw a familiar-sounding man exposing himself and….stuff…under the L tracks near Cornelia and Clark.
The perv's description, male, white, wearing a beanie hat and a black jacket, sounds similar to the man who put on a couple of "performances" in the area on October 14.
There is no indication that police made contact with the man.
