Video Captures Burglar Fleeing Wrigleyville Home As Break-Ins Rise; "It's just sad."

A burglary suspect flees from a home in the 3500 block of N. Fremont early on January 24 | CWB Chicago reader

A Wrigleyville resident’s surveillance camera captured video of a man jumping from his neighbor’s yard after an apparent burglary attempt was foiled in late January. Now, city data shows that burglaries are once again on the rise in the area.

“My back porch camera caught this low life fleeing from an attempted home invasion at my next door neighbors home,” a resident of the 3500 block of North Fremont said in an email.

“He came face to face with my neighbor, who is an elderly woman, as he attempted to enter the home through a bedroom window at 4:20 a.m.”

“The video shows the perp jumping over a fence into my yard. Thankfully no one was hurt.”

On The Rise

And a Lakeview man messaged us late Sunday.

“My place got broken into tonight in Lakeview. First time home owner.Police have already been by. My wife came home around 9:40 [p.m.] to see a light on/door ajar. They basically crowbarred our back door. Nothing was visible from outside. I think they saw no lights on and felt like going for it.”

“It’s extremely upsetting.  What do I do except complain more and hope the criminals face more police. I don't know. It's just sad.”

City statistics show that more than half of this year’s burglaries have been “forcible entry,” meaning that the criminals broke their way into the home rather than using an unlocked door or window.

Other notable cases:
• Monday evening. Man in the 3300 block of North Lakewood tells cops that someone climbed through a window and fled out the back door around 9:30 p.m.
• Last Friday, a burglar smashed his way through a back patio door to access a home in the 2600 block of North Dayton.
• On January 22, a burglar wiggled his way through a sliding glass door in the 800 block of West Waveland. He stole valuables, including the victim’s car.

"Forcible entry" means that the offenders forced their way in, typically by breaking through a door or window. "Unlawful Entry" means that no force was used--a window left unlocked, for example.

  4. I live in the 1100 block of W Patterson. My place was broken into twice in the last 2 years. Downstairs neighbors one time. They also stole all or stuff out of our front hallway (shoes, bikes, etc) on another occasion. My car was broken into 2 months ago as well. I now always leave my lights on and I have a big dog who loves sitting in the window. Hoping that deters burglars. I've lived in Wrigleyville almost 30 years and I've always loved it herr. Unfortunately I'll hopefully be moving out of of Chicago in the next year.

    2. Dear neighbor.
      Thank you for being a decent contributor to the neighborhood. I'm sure we'll be sorry to lose you. But, many of us understand.
      30 years is a long time. You've likely contributed a lot. So, thanks. And good luck.
      Now....HEY!!!! you fu(€ing stooges!!! How many more decent people are you willing to drive out of the neighborhood? How many???
      Please weigh in here. A 41% increase in violent crime...and you're what? Silent???
      41%!
      You ARE to blame. More so if you don't comment here.

    3. I once lived in Austin:
      "My place was broken into twice"; Thru the basement door once, the basement widow next.
      "stole all or stuff out of our front hallway"; Our garage and back porch was cleaned out.
      "My car was broken into"; All installed electronics removed from both family vehicles.
      "now always leave my lights on and I have a big dog"; Two German shepherds, 3 teenagers with a random in-out schedule and an ADT alarm could not stop the onslaught.
      Folded up, moved out in 1983. Leclaire & North. Plenty of cops around then. The opponent one's facing has time on their hands, do you?

  5. I wonder how many of these residences had an evidence technician actually show up on the scene? Tunney certainly got them to show up when his restaurant was ransacked. Hmmmm...any guesses? I'll start....less than 3.

  6. You all voted for Tunney. The gays and liberals are responsible for what happened to lakeview. Your pc attitude has destroyed the neighborhood.

    1. The next time you wonder why we don't publish your comments, refer back to this one. It has all of the usual stuff that we toss out.

    2. I'm gay, a former Lakeview East resident and couldn't agree with him more! Enjoy your 'hood. Alot of us refuse to live like that and have differing standards.

    3. He is wrong about "the gays" and right about everything else. Chicago is one of the most PC places on earth - with the results everywhere around you!

    4. Since when is CW so PC? I thought that what was what was refreshing about it. Are you guys going the way of Budweiser and Starbucks too?

    5. .....gays, liberals, and pc attitude is responsible for the decline of the neighborhood?
      Just like it did in San Francisco. A desert of economic misery out there, right?
      What an idiot.
      And in case you're wondering @1:28 pm, I'm a fiscal conservative. I've written some of the most aggressive criticism of Rahm, TomT and Jimmy on this blog.
      You gotta be from the 'west loop' of Uranus.

  7. Ladies and Gentlemen, 1,000 new Police will not be actually 1,000 more. Between promotions, retirements, Officers leaving for a better offer cleaner city, and firings we will actually be more behind. It's sad there hasn't been any exams to promote Evidance techs recently seeing as the city is so far understaffed there. Also you as voters need to allow stop and frisk, so many Officers are frustrated because the cannot stop someone lurking in a alley or who looks like a offender from a video The criminals are realizing they have more and more ease in committing their crimes
