    Lakeview, Wrigleyville mugging victims describe violent attacks
    Police say at least four people have been violently attacked in the past week on the city's North Side, but ABC7 has learned about more cases in Lakeview and Wrigleyville. Two victims say they were beaten, robbed and left seriously injured. Lucas Wittwer described how he was robbed and beaten steps from Wrigley Field.

  • Is my perception wrong? Having lived in the neighborhood for 10 years it seems to me recently that the only police presence I see is police giving paking tickets or tickets to college kids drinking a beer on the beach.

  • Bryan, you are probably right. Though I appreciate our limited police force and all that they do.....they are under orders to to give tickets out to people who can pay them. As for the violent criminals our WORTHLESS judges hand out a slap on the wrist - if that.....the problem is the "leaders" who don't give a hoot about the tax payers.

    Experience Chicago's Booming Nightlife and Electronic Music Scene this August
    Perhaps one of Chicago's greatest assets is its recognition as the birthplace of house music in the early 1980s. A genre that has since traveled the globe and now solicits stronger associations - for many people - with Europe than the United States, house has influenced countless subsequent genres of electronic music and helped define dance music as we know it today.

Solicitor at 800-900 W Roscoe block

I'm wondering if any of you have received a solicitor this week- a young man, late 20s wearing a tie and black pants. I answered the buzzer and he said, "Don't worry, I'm not the neighborhood bad guy." He's going door-to-door wanting to receive votes (?) on being a mentor for inner city kids? The whole thing screamed scam and I was already wary of even answering the door. Unfortunately, we hear fresh scams every year about the door-to-door solicitor that's actually a burglar or someone casing the home. I wanted to let the neighborhood know and also ask if anyone has met this man or heard more of his pitch.

  • Sounds like a magazine seller. You 'give them votes' by buying magazines. Google 'Magazine door to door scam' and you'll find out more than you ever wanted to know. You did the right thing by ignoring him.

  • I live on that block, and I observed this on the way home from work yesterday. He was standing three steps down from the door and said he was doing so as not to intimidate people answering the door. I stood and watched back the homeowner for a bit just...

    I live on that block, and I observed this on the way home from work yesterday. He was standing three steps down from the door and said he was doing so as not to intimidate people answering the door. I stood and watched back the homeowner for a bit just to make sure it was "ok". Seemed like he had it under control and I continued walking home from work. However, I did not see him 10 minutes later when I walked my dog, and I suspect it was some kind of a scam. Given all the muggings lately, I suggest that everyone be very diligent outside. Don't be on your cell phone or texting, be alert.

Old Dental Office at Hawthrone & Broadway

Just curious, anyone know why the building has a city notice that says "NO ENTRY?"

Seems like that business had been struggling since the root canal patient died a few years ago.

And over the summer, I remember looking at the building from El Mariachi. Part of the roof seemed to really be sagging.
