After getting the man’s valuables, the offender jumped into a silver 4-door Mazda with a license plate that begins with E904. The gunman is described as a black man wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.

The North Center attack was reported at 11:30 Wednesday night. In that case, a 39-year-old man was jumped from behind, beaten and robbed outside his home in the 2200 block of West Melrose. Police said the offender is a male of unknown race who was wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans. He was last seen running eastbound from Oakley.

  1. In 2014 ytd there were 107,000 arrests in city, in 2017 ytd there were 57,000 arrestsy in city. And you ask why crime is running wild. Maybe just maybe these numbers answer that question. Thanks to our fetal police the criminals are winning and will continue to do so. Fetal policing is not the answer.

    1. Your right, they are currently planning another tax hike. They feel that you would be willing to shell out even more for all the exceptional service your neighborhoods are receiving. Sell now while prices are high that light at end of tunnel is more tax increases and more criminal colliding. Cold day in hell before you see proactive policing that could stop the north side feeding frenzy.

    2. Your taxes are going to things like the plastic bag ban, bike lanes (and burial costs of the deceased), public nuisances and nonsense like the Center On Halsted, ambulance runs to Steamworks or to the "homeless" that stubbed their toe on a curb and, the multi-billion $$$$ pension deficit to pay for retired police to collect ANOTHER pension by taking on another job like being a sewer system consultant, trash collection monitor, alderman, judge, jury duty roll call specialist, meter maid or plastic bag ban income statement accountant.

  4. Anon 8:29, you are right. Police are fetal and arrests are down because many of those arrests where made when police where able to stop and frisk. Now that they can't, gangbangers aren't worried about getting caught with a gun. Let the police do their job, you'll be safer. If you keep thinking the trash talking by criminals is the truth and police are always wrong, you'll get beat and robbed eventually.

  5. Response: From someone who knows about the Courts system in Cook County: Albeit the passive policing is part of the problem it is not the entire problem. The problem starts with Toni Periwinkle, Kim Foxx and Tom Dart who are essentially undoing the Criminal court system in Chicago. Toni Periwinkle, Kim Foxx and Tom Dart do not want anyone in the County jails. They want the money that would go to jailing to go to other areas. God only knows where!!! Go down to bond court at 26th and California on any giving weekend and see what kind of a Kangaroo system it has become. The media sits in the jury boxes and Lord knows why they don't report it. Orders from the top, i.e. Toni Prekwinkle is that everyone is to get Electronic Monitoring or I Bonds (no money posted, only a signature promising that you will come back to court. In the old days these types of bonds was reserved for only non violent, misdemeanor offenses. Today you have offenders charged with Aggravated battery to police officers getting I Bonds. Offenders who discharge a fire arm at someone getting I Bonds or EM. True case: Two offenders physically assault a man in Lakeview/Boystown and one of the offenders stabbed the victim with a nail file puncturing the victims lung sending victim to the hospital. Offenders both got I Bonds meaning they got to go home. This was unheard of in the old days. A twenty one year old male offender was arrested for Predetory Criminal Sexual Assault (i.e. Rape) on a thirteen year old girl, this offender got to post a bond of $200 to be free.) You have judges asking defendant how much they can afford to post bond versus looking at there past criminal history to post a bond. Asking someone how much they can afford in the old days was reserved for nonviolent offenses. Everyone is being asked that today. You have judges who are obligated to read from a script stated "the bond I am about to impose I find not to be oppressive and excessive." and end up issuing a low bonds!!!!! All of this is being done so that come election time Prekwinkle and Dart can brag about how much money they have saved the County by emptying out the jails at the expense of public security. You have Tom Dart who has the Courthouses understaffed by not hiring sufficient sheriff's but continues to hire top level, top heavy staff. You can do your own research, at the Cook county jail they have a "Director of Talent"!!!!!! Are inmates auditioning for American Idol?????? WTF!!!! No joke!!!! This is where our tax dollars are going. They are currently talking about closing court houses because the case loads are low. The case loads are low because there are no arrests. There are no arrests because cops are tired of seeing the people they arrest get a slap on the wrist or worse, being called racists or being accused of police brutality or have the media air edited copies of video from smart phones that does not show with whole story while they are trying to do there jobs. Police say that the street thugs always have someone on the corner armed with a Smart phone to record any action that they police take against them. The only problem is the videos never show the provocations or actions or what leads up to the police response. Top this off with Rahm Emmanuel gutting the police district man power from the North part of the city to the Westside and Southside. Now you have criminals in those areas coming to the North side neighborhoods that have some affluence and to an anemic police response. This county and city are apart of an experiment that no signed up for!!!! As a result you have the evidence of this irresponsible form of governance. I swear to you that I am not a conspiracy theorist. Many people do not believe me when I share this information with them. Unfortunately this is a new, surrealist, Twilight Zone reality for this county and city. Again, if you don't believe what I am writing, take a field trip to bond court on any Saturday or Sunday and sit and watch and see for yourself. Bond court is open for the public. Peace!!!!!

    3. This is the new normal. Soon enough no one will recall the days when cops could actually prevent crime by doing police work. People who have been in Chicago their whole lives know the difference. The hipsters moving into the city from Naperville and Kansas get sold a bill of goods about " Chicago values" by crooked politicians. They have no clue how the thugs exploit the system and take advantage of the working class.
