4 VS. 1: Two Jailed After Halsted Beating

The intersection of Halsted and Aldine on Google Street View.
Police caught two of the four people who beat a woman on Boystown's Halsted strip early Tuesday morning.

Officers responding to the battery in progress call requested an ambulance upon finding a woman bleeding after a group of "four females with one male" attacked her around 1AM.

The main offender was described as a female with long hair wearing a red letterman jacket with white sleeves. Police caught up with that person and another member of the group in the alley behind 821 Roscoe. The two were positively identified.

In the end, it appears that not all of the females were female. According to the arresting officers, they took "one male and one other" into custody.

Almost exactly 24 hours earlier, a man was beaten up by a stranger near the same intersection, outside of 3246 N. Halsted.

Halsted Assault

Two men who arrived to do some work at Halsted and Roscoe around 9 o'clock this morning called police because a stranger threatened them with a bottle and would not let them out of their van.

Officers searched the area with the victims—who enthusiastically signed complaints—and soon arrested the offender at Clark and Belmont.

Unreal

Fake money continues to be an issue at businesses in the area. Police were called to two restaurants after fake $100 bills were passed on Monday—a Japanese restaurant on Belmont and a wine bar on Clark Street in nearby Lincoln Park.

  1. I was in a cab on the way to the Cubs game on Tuesday night, about 6:45pm, when a silver sedan behind my cab slammed into a row of parked cars outside of Wrigley BBQ. The driver slowly backed up and proceeded to drive away, with significant damage to their vehicle and the ones parked on Broadway. I was unable to get the plate number, as the cab driver got spooked and sped off. Unreal. Anybody know of this incident?

    Later that night, I happened to sit next to Garry McCarthy at the Captain Morgan club at Wrigley. It was tough holding my tongue!

    1. Wait, you being right in front of the accident was unable to get a license plate but you assume the police, which likely weren't right in front of the accident, should be able to do something magical without A) knowing there was an accident and B) any information on the subject.

      Did you call the police to let them know there was an accident. You failed to mention if you did or didn't,

    2. Yup, that's the police superintendent alright. Tipping a few beers to get his drunk on while the city goes right down the toilet. He's practically at every game, impressing both the beer vendors and the ladies.

    4. Like him, or not......everyone is entitled to some R and R. And in actuality, Rahm is to blame for not providing the manpower we need. McCarthy has little to do with staffing levels.

    5. They are not entitled to lie to the public about issues that affect the citzens' health, safety, and property.

    6. Hey, at least he didn't slap his wife this time. Yes, shortly after his arrival in Chicago he was drunk outside Wrigley and got into a fight with his now ex-wife. According to a witness who called 911, he also "tapped" her on the cheek. The officers who answered that call were quite shocked to find they were breaking up a fight between their new boss and his bride.

  4. I know from experience, had you spoken to him he would have been a prick and would have tried to start an argument to make you look bad. The guy is a drunk with anger issues.

    Saw on YouTube that a fake hundred was passed at Green Grocer on Grand. Posted the surveillance tape.

    4. It was in response to something else, but if you don't know what it means, then you haven't been around here long.
