Lakeview: Cops Investigate Monday Night Home Invasion

Chicago police are investigating an armed home invasion reported Monday evening in the 3200 block of North Seminary.

A woman called police around 10:30 p.m. after an unknown man entered her apartment with a gun.

She described the intruder as a black man who wore a ski mask, dark pants, dark tennis shoes, and a dark hoodie with white drawstrings. He stands about 5’10” tall.

A second witness reported seeing the man run south from the scene, police said.

No other details were immediately available this morning.

  1. You got to think that after your first mugging, assault, or home invasion - it's time to move.

  2. I grew up in a middle class suburb of Milwaukee and never did I witness any crime in my neighborhood of modest homes and nice yards. 30 years later I buy a 500K USD condo in Lakeview and the crime is off the charts. For what? To be closer to the lake path for the 4 months of the year I like to run? TO be close to some very mediorcre bars and restaurants? Doesn't make sense, does it?

    1. Any other place across the planet the real estate prices/housing costs are more expensive the closer you get to the water front. Except most areas of Chicago. And I knew from living in Andersonville that just to enjoy the lakefront you have to cross over two of the shittiest streets probably in the entire city. It's bizarre.

    2. ....and don't get me started on the restaurants. I mean, I know some people have never had anything but gravy and biscuits before but that is NOT Thai or Middle Eastern food in that city, nor BBQ. The hummous was not right and it was the same at every "middle eastern" restaurant from downtown to Rogers Park. I'm sure they get it from some central location and that chick in Andersonville complained there was an open 5 gallon bucket of it behind Reza's left from a delivery driver. Busted! You can buy Kasia's frozen pierogies with freezer burn at Jewel or you can go direct to their deli on Chicago Ave....and buy some frozen ones there. The Berghoff has pretty good German food, not quite what I'm used to but good enough but I can never figure out if they're officially out of business or not so just forgot about them.

      Hey, if you like hot dogs, pizza, and expensive hamburgers with a sprig of mint on top - you're all set! The Bagel had real bagels and the reubens were great too though!

  3. WOW ! 3200 block of N Seminary. That use to be such a lovely neighborhood. What happened?
