BROADWAY-WAVELAND-HALSTED AREA: Man Chased Into Store; Tenacious Teen Keeps Coming Back

Police were called to the 7-Eleven at Waveland and Broadway this morning after a man ran into the store to seek shelter from 8 people, described by the caller only as black males. The eight men were outside the store threatening the victim. The victim, who opted to not file a report, was driven to a safe location by officers.

Officers responded to a "man with a gun" call at Waveland and Halsted yesterday afternoon around 3:40PM. The caller stated that one of three males standing outside of Whole Foods had a firearm. A tactical team sent the three on their way after recording details of the contact. No firearms offense applied.

Four hours later, security in the 3600 block of N. Halsted reported that an 18-year-old man who is barred from the area and who was stopped earlier in the day for allegedly having a "gun or replica gun" had returned to the area.

Finally, at 8:14PM, a criminal damage to property arrest was made at Whole Foods. A tactical unit took the lead on the matter, which is logged in CPD case #HW532394.

  1. Man chased by 8 people - police show - no report. Thus, crime rates down. Sometimes, this neighborhood has no one to blame but ourselves.

  2. All of these events occurred near the CoH. But, those people are not responsible for the crime in the area, right? The snarky little bearded CoH guy at the CAPS meeting said so, so it must be true. And no report, no crime committed. No crime statistics. Crime ---> falling. Voulgaris looks good, Tunney looks good, aren't we all merry and happy?

    1. "Merry" Christmas. And I caution all of you to investigate the feel-good charity that you hand over $ to this season. They could come back to bite you in the ass come PrideFest.

  3. I don't understand why people don't file a report? Is it hard to do? No, really is it? (no sarcasm)

    1. Because they have warrants themselves?

    1. One may be prohibited from being on private property. The COH/Whole Foods complex, for example.

  5. easy, if its not public, its private. and if you do something stupid or disruptive or unsafe on the private, you will be asked to leave. that is the right of the owner. and if you are a big enough jagoff while on private prop., yes, you can be barred and not allowed to return, ever again. thats it.
