UPDATE: West Lakeview Robbery Arrestee Has Boystown Address

The Sun-Times has more information (LINK DEAD) about the man who was arrested after robbing a woman he followed home from the Paulina Brown Line station late Thursday night.

CWB reported on that case early Friday morning.
Martise Earl Lowe, 21, of the 3300 block of North Broadway, was ordered held on $300,000 bail Saturday on charges of home invasion and aggravated kidnapping.
Authorities say he followed the 26-year-old woman to her apartment in the 1700 block of West Henderson just before midnight Thursday, put a hand around her throat and threw her to the ground, then took off with her MacBook and iPhone.
[…]
Lowe is on probation for a robbery.
The robbery Lowe is on probation for took place in Wilmette during July 2012. The victim was a 65-year-old woman according to a press report. Is it us, or does his Wilmette mugshot make him the the oldest-looking "20 year old" of all time?

Lowe had a Humboldt Park address at the time of his arrest in Wilmette.

Since then, he managed to get a new address in the 3300 block of N. Broadway. Hmm. There aren't very many residences in the 3300 block of Broadway. That strip is almost entirely one-story commercial buildings. There are a handful of apartments above Starbucks at Broadway and Roscoe. And, then, there is that church where the Broadway Youth Center set up shop one year ago.

The Chicago Tribune also carries the story.

  1. No 20 year old of ordinary means rents one of those apartments on Broadway. He must have used the church as his address.

    1. My neighbor in her 50's takes her little dog for their walks by that church daily. She told me that the "troubled youth" were sometimes sleeping on the rear patio when it was warm at night. In light of what we know, she's lucky she wasn't a victim of this church's good but misguided deeds. I feel bad for the folks living near the Wellington church. Hope it doesn't get their permit

    2. If I were him, I probably would have "used" that address on a resume or job application to better myself. I'm sure the franchise type businesses in the area are clueless as to what's really going on and would have hired him in an instant knowing he has no excuse to be late every other day. Next step? Get a little apartment on the 3200+ block of Broadway (there's nothing special about them), keep your nose clean and - voila - you have "arrived". Are the social service directors teaching them this trick or are they just using their addresses so as not to be arrested at HOME?

  2. Bet he wouldn't have got away with this in his own neighborhood.

    Just more proof that they weren't kicked out for being gay, but for being a menace to society. That guy ain't gay looking like that.

    1. the wilmette story says he grabbed a woman's tit that summer, too. targeting women and copping a titty squeeze. he's not gay, but one of the apologists will insist that he falls into one of the other QUILTBAG categories and needs to be understood.

    2. QUILTBAG??? Try DOUCHEBAG.

  3. Someone should ask BYC (maybe the deposed Lara Brooks) exactly how many of their patrons are utilizing the program that allows them them to list the center as a home address. My guess is that they couldn't answer the question because they really don't have a clue as to who or what is working their way through the facility. It's all about collecting the grant money and funding from DFSS then unlocking the doors and washing their hands of any responsibility.

    1. Wow - I read "deposed Lara Brooks" and had to look it up. YAY! Good work SELVN and others - Lara Brooks is GONE. Now let's see if her replacement, Imani Rupert, can clean the up the BYC.
      I doubt it. http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20131212/lakeview/broadway-youth-center-director-lara-brooks-stepping-down-friday

      --------
      Don't forget that BYC also obstructs justice on hot pursuits.

  4. Good reporting CWB. The Sun-Times and Tribune should have given you a credit for breaking this story.

    1. Thank you, Anonymous. Their facts are remarkably similar to those we reported earlier, ain't they?
