HEAD CASE: Man Arrested In "Brick or Concrete" Attacks On Women

A Lincoln Park man has been charged with three attacks on women in which the victims were hit in their heads with a heavy object, described as a "brick or chunk of concrete" by officers after one incident..

DNAInfo Chicago reports that 30-year-old Kevin Jones of Lincoln Park is charged with three counts of aggravated battery and is held on $400,000 bond.

Jones was arrested on Saturday after hitting a third woman in the head near a CHA retirement center in the 2600 block of Sheffield, which is also listed as Jones' home address. Police apprehend Jones after a short foot chase.

Now, why would a 30-year-old be living in senior housing?

  1. I am afraid we may never find out just WHY a 30-year old lives in senior housing other than to say he is deemed as being "entitled." However, I am afraid that we will SEE a lot more 30 year-olds living in senior compleses for free when the "Senior" housing apartments at Halsted and Addison opens. Those living there for whatever "emergency" need will also be deemed "entitled." Of course, room, utilities, social services, disruption to the neighborhood, fighting in the street, robbing residents, bringing "friends" to meet up with "friends" and so forth will be "rights." deemed to the "entitled." Such detrimental places as these are paid for, of course, by the ignored and embattled taxpayers. We are NOT entitled to safe housing. We are NOT entitled to "services" (in the form of police protection). We are NOT entitled to say anything about OUR social problems. We are not entitled to say anything about OUR being preyed upon by those of other classes. We are not entitled to say anything about crime in OUR neighborhood. The only entitlement we have is to keep paying. And not to even think about fleeing. "They" can flee their neighborhoods...the politically correct celebrate the result of such action as "diversity." If we also flee our neighborhoods for safety, however, the same politically correct call that action "bigotry" Talk about doublespeak! And Lakeview continues to get worse.

    5. Correct me if I am wrong, but The Center On Halsted will be involved in the management of that "Senior" apartment building. I think people are in for a very big surprise when they see what constitutes "senior" after that place opens for business. I find it ironic that neighbors grabbed their clubs and torches over the OUT Hotel project (which would have brought business, money and a much needed upgrade to Halsted Street), yet this apartment building which will more likely than not supersize the problem created by COH received no pushback at all.

    6. The neighbors were against the design of the OUT Hotel not the idea for the most part and questioned the projects financing. The OUT Hotel is still not dead. They are quietly still pushing to build it. The Senior Housing was pushed through by the City of Chicago and the Mayor. The City controlled the property.

  3. I wouldn't be surprised if they find out he could have been the prep in the Jacob K. murder. Same area where this guy has been active and hitting people in the head with bricks or hammers can kill someone. Its amazing the victims he was arrested for were not killed.

    As far as his age being in senior housing, based on how the city considers the "Halsted Youths" (ie 20 something yr olds) to be homeless youths, then I guess a 30 yr old would be a senior citizen to them. Oh what fun we have to look forward to.

    1. It's Urban Math:

      (criminal lifestyle + other negative personal choices) x (neighborhood of origin + probably lack of education) = life expectancy <35 = 30 year old senior citizen

      See how that works?

  4. Well stated, Bishop Mike. Send a copy to the asshole alderman.

  7. The "Halsted Youths" (The Center on Halsted, for those not in the know) and the Broadway Youth Center are, if I remember correctly, supposed to be aged 12-24 (or is it 26) years old.
    How's 18-26 for "youth"? Correct me if I'm wrong, CWB, or others.

  8. Hey Alderman Michele Smith.

    A 30 year old living in CHA Senior housing at 2600 N Sheffield? That's your ward.

    Why don't you step up to plate and boot this dirtbag?

    Great opportunity for you to be a fraud-fighter. And the dirt bag gets what he deserves.

    Sincerely,

    One of your constituents who is too tired of working to support those who will not.

  9. Seeing that this guys last victim was 66 yrs. old and a senior and he is living in a senior housing, you would think his behavior would have somehow surfaced and been noticed by the management and residents in that building. Thanks for your concise comment Bishop Mike. You said it like it is. This city and it's politicians mismanage everything. Didn't they used to call Chicago, the city that works? Must have been a long time ago..

  10. Youth ... 18-26. What a joke. I finished college at 21, got my first "real" job at 22, paid off a new car at 24, supervised 18 employees at 24, had a six-figure salary at 25, and bought a small company at 26. All while being a "youth" according to the CoH and BYC age ranges for "youth." I'm now 31 and seriously contemplating "retiring" by 40 so I can travel and see the world and do good works for others. How did I achieve all that? By busting my ass and working for it. I didn't feel "entitled" and I didn't feel anyone "owed" me anything. I never needed "social services," for the reason listed above -- busting my ass. SO how is that some of these 26-year-old (or even 24-year-old "youth") get all this free education, housing, "social services," job training, skills training, medical care, and on and on and on? Why? Because somewhere at some point WE ALLOWED IT. Someone signed some official document sometime somewhere, and a result, years later, "youth" feel "entitled" to all of the above and more. And if we dare to speak out on it, or attempt to deny such things to these "youth," we are immediately and automatically deemed "racists," "bigots," and what-not. We are fucked, plain and simple. I wonder what this neighborhood, for example, will look like in 5 years, 10 years, 25 years ....

  11. Nothing to see here folks... Wait till the "Senior" housing apartments at Halsted and Addison becomes the new 24/7 safehouse for the neighborhood thugs. They already have the COH as their daytime safehouse, but once the new apartments open, they won't even have to use the Red Line to commute to "work".

    1. Not sure why you would think that. It's a brand new building and will not be rented to thugs off the street. Sure there will be some affordable housing in it but those will go to SENIORS who need it.

  13. He has an older relative living in that building or is mentally challenged. Probably was intimidating and robbing lots of residents but they were to afraid to report it.
