WRIGLEYVILLE: Woman Awakened During Criminal Sexual Assault Attempt

Chicago police are investigating after a woman reported being awakened by an attempted criminal sexual assault Sunday morning near Wrigley Field.

Around 6:30 this morning, the woman told police that she woke up in the 1100 block of West Patterson to discover a shirtless man on top of her. The offender fled the apartment with credit cards, identification, and other property belonging to the victim and a second woman.

Police describe the suspect as a tall, slender, well-built, shirtless black man with a wide nose and dreadlocks pulled into a pony tail.

The victim, 26, is being treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

    3. "That is a joke. Were were all the officers? It was a Saturday night. What did they take off ?" Do you read this blog? Our police have been cut steadily for years, when crime surges on a Saturday night we are undermanned.

  2. Tunney's "increased police resources" in action. People, we need to nail him to the cross in terms of accounting for saying one thing and not doing another- Wed night 9/2, 7pm, CAPS meeting.

    1. Why are you waiting for the CAPS meeting? I really don't understand - if people really cared - they would take a day off from work or go in late -- to go to his OFFICE and give him an earful...not at a CAPS meeting where he is protected by the goon squad?

    2. @ TheDoctor: Nice idea, but he is either rarely in the office, or if he is, he is protected even further by his goon squad. It is literally impossible to be granted an appointment with that fool. I've been trying for three years! And if you approach him on the street or in his tacky little declining restaurant, he slithers away, like the snake that he is.

    3. But he's already been re-elected, the time to be angry and stomping to his office making demands was before the election. And so now if he is cornered just expect his political dance saying he is doing all he can, lying about the facts and figures and saying that it's not his fault.

    5. moved to Seattle last week and could NOT be happier. I had enough and can't believe what has become of such an amazing neighborhood. Spent 15 years there and knew over the last 2-3 it was time to go!

  4. Wow! The district was out of cars for almost 4 1/2 hours on a Saturday night. Calls for help went unanswered. The thugs had a field day and then hit the red line for a ride home.

    1. Curious to any coppers out there, when the district "runs out of cars", does the dispatcher then prioritize calls based on severity of crime, time called or what? Obvioulsy I hope based on severity of the crime i.e. if the real shit goes down it takes priority over minor shit.

    2. In case you didn't know, all calls are prioritized by severity. Bodily harm and weapons are at the top of the list.

    3. So you know, many officers assume high-priority calls are "fresh." Example: man with a gun, shots fired. However, most times 5+ minutes elapse. Sometimes you'll hear officers ask "squad, what time was that call," which is how we find out. It makes no sense to me. Five minutes is a huge delay if you ask me. I'm sorry but most of us hearing those calls rush to the area or to set up a perimeter. It pisses me off that we risk our safety, citizens safety and lawsuits when all that time has elapsed.

      Also, supervisors can check pending assignments but they'd have to go on the computer and check pending. When it's busy it makes no sense to stop looking for offenders to see other calls the dispatchers have not yet put over the air. At slow times it is unreasonable to keep checking that screen. After all, that is what dispatch is for

      To the website operators, this is very odd: I used to be able to check citywide calls of shots fired (command line "usm shotsfd" or "persho.). For about the last year that comes back with no response. However, when you click on individual districts you can see all shots fired and person shot calls. I believe its to limit officers from accessing shootings and spreading the word or even knowing. That's just a theory though but for what other reason would that search feature be disabled?

    4. Disabling that feature would be a threat to officer safety. It makes no sense.
