Police were called to the Night Ministry's weekly outreach mission at Halsted and Belmont last night after a fight broke out and 911 callers reported rocks being thrown and hitting passing vehicles.

Officers arrived on scene at 10:20PM and immediately reported seeing a fight in progress in the lot. After striking the victim, three offenders chased him into oncoming traffic, forcing drivers to swerve to avoid collisions.

In custody for battery are a 22-year-old man whose address is a church in Wicker Park and two 18-year-olds from the South Side's Washington Heights neighborhood. CWB is withholding their names as charges are pending.

As of this morning, police had not received reports of damage to vehicles.

Rev. Barbara Bolsen, Vice President for Programs at Night Ministry, is away until late next week and could not be reached for comment today.

Brash Burglar

A resident in the 3600 block of Magnolia woke up Thursday morning to a curious sight. While he slept, a burglar removed the security bars from his basement windows and broke in to his home. Recorded as a forcible entry burglary in CPD case HX386934.

    1. Those who don't respond well to rules may end up responding to containment. A civilized society has rules. Those who can't function within those rules may need to function outside of them. Inside a cell.

    2. Anyone with a paycheck involved will find this worth arguing over.

  3. Saturday night. Lot of down cars and one man cars again. Hope it's not too bad out.
    Same officers taking the weekends off yet again. This is a joke again on the weekends with not enough help out there.

    1. Be safe. 20% of beat cars, including the 2 that cover most of Uptown, didn't operate this morning. 2.5 hour RAP last night. It's a flashback to 2013.

  4. Yes be safe everyone, back each other up. Last night a officer working alone could not get backup. Very dangerous and should never happen. Don't know if it was laziness or no cars available to back him up. But I don't care a noise disturbance can wait, You always back each other up

  5. The 1968 team is supposed to be the robbery team. They come in at around 11pm and leave by 3am every night. They need to be held accountable.

    1. There's been a huge drop in robberies. Somebody must be doing something, right?

    2. I know the sergeant of that team and can tell you that I know for a fact he is still around at 7 AM, I've seen him and spoken with him. I've seen members of his team at that time too... You sound like a person who feels (unjustly) that others get things you don't...

    4. I'm on the 1962 team. And I know for a fact that the 1968 team does not work a full day!
      They always have a late car and everyone else leaves early. I've seen it with my own eyes.
