UNCHIVALROUS: Women Targeted In Weekend Muggings

At least four robberies targeting women were reported in the neighborhood and nearby Lakeview this weekend. Two women, including a 64-year-old, were attacked from behind in separate incidents early Saturday. Those attacks may be related. (Details HERE)

• Our friends at HeyJackass learned of a robbery in our neighborhood Saturday morning. A woman told officers that she was pepper sprayed by two black females who took her wallet and phone near Kenmore/Barry. The victim filed a report with 18th district officers at a friend’s house in nearby Lincoln Park around 4AM. The robbery took place at 2:30AM according to the report.. Case number is HX454548.

• At 5:30 Sunday morning, a woman was strong arm robbed next to Wrigley Field at Waveland and Sheffield. She walked to the nearby 19th district station and filed a report, saying that the offender took her Samsung phone and wallet, then fled past Murphy’s Bleachers. She described her offender as a Spanish-speaking Hispanic man, 5’5” tall, dark hair, black jacket, jeans, with a black messenger bag.  Case number is HX455738.

Welcome to Lakeview...

• Thursday, 8:18PM — An officer conducts a street stop in the 3600 block of Recreation Drive and checks the subject's name for wants/warrants. Dispatcher response: “He’s got gang crime activity. He’s a registered violent sex offender. Murderer. He’s paroled. But, other than that, he’s clear.”

• Today, 4:59AM — An officer conducts a street stop near Clark and Roscoe and checks the subject’s name for wants/warrants. Due to a communication snafu, the dispatcher misspells the subject’s name and fails to locate the man’s records. CWB checked state records using the correct spelling and found that the 38-year-old was paroled out of Illinois’ Dixon Correctional Center on September 16 after serving nearly three years for a Lake County burglary. In 2001, he was sentenced to two years in prison for a different Lake County break-in.

  1. "conducts a street stop near Clark and Roscoe and checks the subject’s name for wants/warrants"

    What exactly does this mean? Can officers just stop anyone, ask for ID and run them through the system? If they don't recognize the person, don't they need some kind of cause?

    1. How did you gather that they did not have cause? Likely examples of cause near Clark and Roscoe at 4:59AM would be looking into parked cars, pulling on door handles, peeking into back yards, going into gangways and walking back out, fiddling with bike locks, trespassing on CTA property....

    2. Are you out at 4:59 am? If so you know who is in need of a little extra Police attention. Dont cry about who the Police stop to identify and also cry that the Police do not do enough. They are not stopping people going to work, jogging, or simply enjoying the day on a stroll. Thank you

  2. Im hearing there are still a lot of officers on the medical?? For months now.
    And hear it's the same officers, always on the medical. How do they get away with this when this district is always going into a Rap on weekends ????

    1. This is true. And Yes the same ones always on the medical.
      This should be looked into.

    2. ...because they can. God bless the unions and doctor's reports. I don't think anything CAN be done about it.

  3. "“He’s got gang crime activity. He’s a registered violent sex offender. Murderer. He’s paroled. But, other than that, he’s clear.”

    1. Same reaction here. Need a three strikes law, except for murder which should be one strike and you are out.

    2. One place you can go is the list of violent offenders Quinn "accidentally" released from prison.

  4. The growing trend of violent, one on one interactions is truly getting more terrifying. There will be blood and horrible, needless tragedies if the authorities don't abruptly change their modus operandi to sensible staffing and policies.

    Mr. MAYOR + Mr. MAYOR'S AIDES AND SUBORDINATES, who surely must read this most important site:

    THIS is the FIRST/MOST important sworn duty of the Mayor:

    insuring the protection of the citizens!! That any needless, innocent blood on the Mayor's hands will NOT soon be forgotten or forgiven by the voters is a certainty. And how deep ARE the city's pockets to defend lawsuits?

  5. Off topic but I saw CWB cited on a vote no to the cta flyover ad posted on a business' window in Wrigley today. I was happy to physically see something distributed in the neighborhood. Were you guys aware or is it your flyer?

    1. Nope. Not ours and we were not aware of it.

    2. You're short on police in 19, yet the city burns $350,000 on a goofy Chicago Fire event in the name of artsy fartsy economic
      stimulus. Evidently, the total cost of the event was 2 million. The balance was paid for with private donations.

      I think there were three or four Victorian home floats and three small floats. Even with permits, how does that all come to $350,000??? $10-15K for the large home floats seems like a lot of money.

      Your Mayor and neighbor is supporting the pissing away of money like this while you go without adequate police and the city goes deeper in debt.

    3. It's actually a really good quote. I'll take a picture of it when I walk by today and email it.

    4. We have arsonists terrorizing our neighborhood, yet the City of Chicago can't even start a fire when it wants to.

    5. It was all just a pre-Chicago Fire Festival celebration. Kinda like how the Pride parade starts a month early now. Relax.

      Anything for a buck. There are more important things to worry about, like the Trump Tower sign.
