|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 RiseAnd 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.
On The RiseSixty-one break-ins had been reported in our district this year as of January 25. That’s up from fifty-eight during the same period last year and only 38 in 2015.

"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.
