CENTER ON HALSTED: Man Threatened With Knife, Arrest Made

Wikipedia
A man who allegedly brandished a knife and threatened to stab another man outside the Center on Halsted was taken into custody by Chicago police within minutes Thursday evening.

The offender, who had been seen running toward Addison, apparently circled the block and popped up across the street from the COH while police were speaking with the victim. An arrest was quickly completed.

Aggravated assault charges are being sought. (Case HY148438)

Arrest In Uptown Robbery

Officers made another important arrest earlier Thursday evening after a boy punched a woman in her face and stole her phone near Montrose and Racine in Uptown.

Police arrested the underage attacker about 20 minutes after the robbery as he, too, returned to the scene of the crime. (Case HY14831)

Hi Boys!

Speaking of juveniles. 911 callers reported seeing two unsupervised boys hanging out at the Belmont CTA station shortly before 6 o’clock Wednesday night. Callers estimated the boys to be 10- and 12-years-old.

As it turns out, they are both supposed to be under the supervision of the Lawrence Hall residential youth center in Lincoln Square. A CWB reader reported that one of the boys was wearing only a t-shirt and shorts.

Burglary Beat

A Boystown resident was surprised to find her front door open in the 800 block of Aldine around 8:40 Tuesday morning. She was even more surprised to find a complete stranger rummaging around inside.

Police responded quickly, but the unknown man was long gone. He’s described as white, bearded, 5’10” tall, and wearing a red hat. Recorded as criminal trespassing to a residence in case HY146416.

Another confirmed break-in: 3600 block of Paulina. Discovered early Wednesday.

  1. Wondering if you guys are aware of this crazy, dangerous food delivery driver who is almost killing pedestrians with his reckless driving?

    As discussed in this post:

    http://www.reddit.com/r/chicago/comments/2uwvui/crazy_driver_around_lakeview/


    This may be his license: E435810 according to a Redditor.

    He definitely drives for the Chinese restaurant immediately south of Belmont on Halsted. Peking Chinese Kitchen.

    He runs red lights and almost hits pedestrians. Place has pretty crappy food, too, BTW.

    1. I thought the food was pretty good for the price. Always got take-out, the dining area was awful but the phone was always ringing off the hook with delivery orders when i went in there. No, there was nothing fancy, trendy or organic about it.

  3. Off-topic, but any idea what was happening on the 3900 block of Pine Grove Thursday night at about 10:30? I looked out the window and it was lit up like a Christmas tree with police and fire vehicles and, I believe, an ambulance. They appeared to be focusing attention on the occupant(s) of a car that was double parked.
    Thanks in advance and thanks for all that you do.

  4. DearLord .... and possibly a cop's gun? Am I alone in finding the details confusing? God bless and protect the CPD and us all.

    Shoplifter being arrested fires gun at police on North Side

    Excerpt:

    Two officers were injured in the fight, said Police Deputy Chief Dana Alexander, in a short media statement at the scene. The two officers were hospitalized following the incident, said Alexander, who said the attacker was able to fire only one shot. He did not say whether the man arrested was hospitalized.

  5. Bad guy attacked officer who was first on scene and riding alone. Severe head/eye injuries. Bad guy took officer's gun and shot at second officer arriving, also riding solo. Officer being treated at IL Masonic while $hithead was taken to Swedish Covenant. Prayers for the officer. The eye damage could end his career.

    1. Our prayers are with you,officer! The lack of adequate police staffing affects everyone in our community including the good guys and gals of our districts police force. The answer to the problem isn't to let good areas of the city go down the tubes.

    Amen!
    Pray both officers heal and are OK. What monsters in our midst. Too many of them, too little honor of oath to duty, safety and care by AlderTun and his slick master rahm. Solution? ELECTION is right around the corner. Vote, toss 'em out!.
