Neighbor heard the noise and shouted and guy jumped the fence and ran south down the alley. Description of the guy is black male,slim,about 6ft tall wearing grey hoodie (that was pulled over face so couldn't get face or age description) and long pair of jeans. He opened a bottle of tonic water I had in the garage and drank from it. I told the police this when I filed the report thinking maybe they could get DNA and see who the guy is.....but they were not interested in this.

    And come to think of it, had Bill in Rogers Park run into the crook in his garage and the crook had a gun, this could have had a different ending. Then I'm sure the Police would have been all over the bottle of tonic. At least he filed the police report, reported it etc which is more than I can say for the people who say "did anyone hear gun shots" and don't call 911.

    We seem to have spate of car and Garage break-ins in the neighborhood. This week in alley behind me I found envelope with car registration info,etc. I called the number found in the envelope and it was a cab driver who said his car had been broken into this week on the 1400 block of Arthur. Another neighbor in 1300 block of Albion said she saw 6ft, AfricanAmerican late teen early 20s wearing red and yellow hoodie checking out cars in middle of weekday afternoon. She lost sight of him and then saw him ransacking Neighbor's car. Police called but offender got away. And one additional note from my original post: Chicago Police detective did follow-up with me re my break-in. No suspect yet. So if you see guys checking out cars on the street and looking inside the vehicles, testing doors, etc. call 911 to get police presence.

Another Stolen Bike

Here is the best photo I have even though it was about ten years ago. Again thx for your interest in helping! I miss it so much already.

  • Every bike I have ever owned has been stolen.

  • Gabriel Resident of PRRP

    I quickly overheard a street conversation months ago that was filled with a lot of suggestion and knowing arched eyebrows. It seemed as if some guy was letting another know bikes had become available at "the same place."

    I still wonder what it was all about and if this was a resale network of stolen bikes.

    No, I didn't call the cops because it all happened quickly and on the streets.

Another Stolen Bike

I had my bike stolen a couple of days ago from Howard and Greenview. It's a blue Mongoose mountain bike with two lights on the handlebars and country rock Michelin Tires. If anyone sees it please let me know thanks much!

  • Do you remember how you had it locked up? I just got a bike recently and it's interesting to see all of the different ways people lock theirs up. I wonder if I should bother obsessing about it if someone can just come along and steal them no matter what.

  • Pedro G. Hillary lost, hoorah!

    I hope you find it.

My bike was stolen this morning

My bicycle was stolen from an enclosed area behind my condo (1700 block of Estes, just east of Clark) this morning. Please let me know if you happen to see it somewhere--it is a blue and white Schwinn from the 1960's. Not a fancy bike, but I love it and miss it...see the attached pic, which I took a couple days ago, for reference.

Thanks all.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    What's the likelihood that someone would steal a bike and then lock it up in plain sight in the neighborhood in which it was stolen?

  • Bruce_ Comment by Live From Rogers Park, whom you've mute

    It's more likely that the bike will be found in RP than 105 k worth of PB bike racks will be found in RP. 7yrs.

Is street safe

Hello everyone . I'm going to look at house on 94th and Burnside. Is anyone familiar with street or neighborhood . Would gladly appreciate if someone can give me info . Thanks

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    Maybe she was thinking of moving from RP. Nevertheless, Pill Hill/Burnside is much dicier than it used to be. Try looking west, such as Ridge Historic District, Morgan Park or Beverly (more diverse than one might think) if you want to move that far south.

  • Thanks Sandy !

Shots Fired Columbia

Has anyone seen police activity--we had four shots fired near the Columbia Avenue Beach.

  • Lib

    The shots woke me up as well-- I'm on Pratt. I looked outside on the beach and didn't see any activity.

  • I was walking there last night, apparently at a different time, thankfully. Didn't see police. Speaking of police, thanks to Live (and Helen, too!) for keeping us amateurs in line. Appreciate your diligence!

Man stabbed in back at Loyola red line stop around 6 PM.

A man with a walker was just stabbed in the back with a screwdriver at the Loyola red line stop. The attacker got back on the red line and escaped. Police and emergency services all around Loyola.

  • Walker or wheelchair? Perp arrested or got away? I know people want to inform others but maybe wait til.the facts are verified

Drones in my neighborhood?

I need an outsiders perspective here. Would you support consumer Drones flying over your neighborhood in Rogers Park capturing footage of illegalities going on in areas known for crime? Seriously, I'm considering a consumer Drone with the capacity to fly a few miles and capture ultra high resolution video of illegalities in 'hotspot" areas. I'm leaning towards the DF-X6 model (see attached). All this would be in an effort to turn around the South Side community I live in so that the quality of life is improved. What say you? Is this a crazy Buck Rogers ambition here or is it something you would support?

  • I don't blame her a bit. EB has become nothing more than a forum for brats to hone their skills at being rude and insulting with the written word. They are probably OK in person.

Jarvis Redline Station Altercation

It has been about two months since this incident.
I was standing the platform. Two teen and one younger child were only others there.

The two tried to distract me so that youngster could take wallet from back pocket. They tried several times.

It has been about two months since this incident.
I was standing the platform. Two teen and one younger child were only others there.

The two tried to distract me so that youngster could take wallet from back pocket. They tried several times.

I pressed assistance needed on platform button twice with no response.

I finally used my cane to get them to move so I could get down to attendant.
I ran down steps screaming and afraid I would fall.

She called police. The perpetrators took incoming train to howard. The police apprehended them.

I took next train to howard and saw police and perpetrators. I went over and officially identified them and they were taken away.

What I leaned:
My wallet is big and just fits in pocket.
I have chain on wallet to belt. This saved me losing wallet and contents.

Pressing the assistance button did nothing. The attendant ignored it twice.

It was not until I got to booth. She could not hear me through sealed/locked booth.

She did call police and found out theses three had been riding the trains to stations far apart and doing same thing

I now will only go on platform just before trains arrive. I am now wary if by my self.

I rely on CTA I no longer can afford a car in the city. I travel early mornings to late evenings often to get to doctors a 2 1/2 hour ride. I also use it to shop or visit friends around town.

Instead of the semi-helpful heaters having real emergency assistance from attendant or cameras on every platform would make a safer environment.

If you see something specious use the button. I did not report lack of response. I was too upset. If no answer by attendant report I did not as I was trying to get to howard and identify perps which I did.

Call our alderman. I was too shaken to think clearly.

  • The attendant at Jarvis not only does nothing but encouraged his friends to cause trouble.
    This is the guy usually working Sunday with long braided hair.
    He could care less what crimes are being committed.
    We had an encounter and it turned out to be a FRIEND of the attendant working just described.

    As someone who uses a cane and travels 2.5 hrs to see doctors, you should look into the Pace Bus ParaTransit service, which lets you schedule a trip with special route pickups and drop-offs. They will also pick you up when you are ready to return home. All trips must be scheduled in advance.

    This service is designed for senior riders and riders with disabilities.
    There are no other eligibility restrictions I know of, but you need to apply so you can be certified as disabled by the RTA.

    To the best of my knowledge a trip costs a little bit more than a regular CTA trip.

    Read more about the Pace service here and be sure to follow links for more info:

Gunshot near Ashland and Pratt

I was walking my dog tonight on Bosworth near North Shore slightly before midnight when I heard one extremely loud what sounded like a gunshot coming from just a bit east of me. It was so loud and unexpected that I involuntarily screamed.

I would have called 911, but there was already a strong-- and odd– – police presence on Bosworth. On Bosworth and North Shore, a police car with a female officer driving was stopped at the stop sign....

I was walking my dog tonight on Bosworth near North Shore slightly before midnight when I heard one extremely loud what sounded like a gunshot coming from just a bit east of me. It was so loud and unexpected that I involuntarily screamed.

I would have called 911, but there was already a strong-- and odd– – police presence on Bosworth. On Bosworth and North Shore, a police car with a female officer driving was stopped at the stop sign. At least four cars were lined up in back of her, no one moving or honking. I kept wondering why no one was passing her.

As I walked further down the street, two mail police officers were walking around. Both of them were wondering aloud why none of the cars were passing her, too. They were speculating that the drivers have been drinking and didn't want to pass a police officer. So, that was three police officers out on the street – – for what reason?

After the gunshot, I saw two cars racing west on Pratt, squealing around the corner onto Ashland.

Anyway– – just wondered if anyone else heard the noise?

Reported domestic violence on Saturday

On Saturday evening I saw a couple walking up the stairs with groceries, and then the young man hit the woman and knocked her down the stairs in full view of our backyard. She fell down the stairs, started screaming and crying. The man left her there, and a female neighbor from their building seemed to be helping the woman. I called 911 from around the corner but...

She fell down the stairs, started screaming and crying. The man left her there, and a female neighbor from their building seemed to be helping the woman. I called 911 from around the corner but was very nervous about the man knowing I had called 911, and unfortunately didn't see any response from police in the next hour. Sadly this violence is probably a pattern for this couple. I also took down the number of their building management company. Does anyone have a recommendation other than calling 911?

  • Pedro G. Hillary lost, hoorah!

    A description of the couple is very important.

    @Pedro Garciano - Go back and read it again. That was not all I wrote, that was just what you opted to quote.

    Also, you overstate the responses you have read by interpreting people as "upset".

Man on bike grabbing women in the street in RP

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly.

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly. I yelled, "I see you and I'm going to report what you just did!" He raised his right arm and without turning around, gave me the finger. I asked another man who was walking to his car on N. Newgard Ave if he had seen the cyclist (he hadn't). I said, loudly, "He just grabbed me as he rode past." When the man on the bike heard me say this, he raised both hands in the air and gave me two fingers (while still riding the bike). Then he rode out of eyesight, heading north on N. Newgard Ave.

The man on the bike who grabbed me appeared to be Caucasian, mid-20s to 40 years old, with a slim build. He was wearing dark pants, possibly black jeans, a black jacket (zip up with no hood), sneakers, and a wool hat. The hat looked to be dark blue, possibly with a stripe around it. He was riding a black BMX style bike that appeared to be a bit too small for him.

I filed a police report on this incident and I'm also going to report it to the Alderman's office.

Please keep an eye out around Rogers Park for an individual fitting this description; in particular, a man who appears to be wearing a lot of dark clothing, given the warm weather, and riding a BMX-style bike. He was pretty bold to do this in the middle of the day, in broad daylight. I'm concerned about what he might get up to after dark. Women walking around Rogers Park should be careful, and keep an eye on your surroundings. If an incident occurs, call 911.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - An irredeemable moral failure

    @Mad About RP - But since you asked, previous posts have pointed out your cherry-picking of the statutes. I reread the posts and your replies and have to agree with Joan M.

    Thank you for asking!

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - An irredeemable moral failure

    @Mad About RP - You wrote: "I realize this is a narritive [sic] wrecker for you"

    Not sure what NARRATIVE you think you are wrecking. The issue is one of whether the offense is battery or if it is a sexually oriented crime. Based on the description by the OP, the alleged crime was not sexual in nature.

    That really is all there is to the matter no matter how many references you make to the statutes you believe are relevant.
