Chicago policemen arrested one of two men who robbed a 28-year-old woman at knifepoint July 21 at the entrance to her apartment on the 6600 block of N. Glenwood Ave.

Tyrell Gibbs, 20, of the 7300 block of N. Winchester Ave., and Tameshia Hoard, 18, of 200 Julian St. in Waukegan, were both charged with felony armed robbery with a dangerous weapon. They are scheduled to appear in court on August 1.

For the second time this month bullets pierced the glass of a residence along 6500 N. Mozart Ave., this time shattering the front windows, smashing into a wall and splintering a television screen in the couple's bedroom around 3:45 a.m.

A CPD tactical team arrested a suspected bike thief who turned out to be a Black P-Stone on July 22 after he was unable to answer a salvo of direct questions in a sidewalk near 6100 N. Washtenaw Ave. 

The offender, 24, of the 3900 block of S. Princeton Ave., was observed about 9:30 p.m. riding continuously up and down a stretch of sidewalk without any apparent purpose. The officers had been sent to monitor that specific area, which has been harried by a flurry of recent burglaries.

A Sarpino's delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint July 19 in the entrance to a building at 1020 W. Winona St. The driver said a man standing in the vestibule had opened the door as he approached but put a gun to his head after stepping through the door.

I had to wait for a bus & sat in my wheeled walker by a mailbox at the bus stop to wait. I noticed a man across the street in front of a store almost immediately because once I sat down he stared for a few seconds, then crossed the street, walked past me (closer than necessary) & down Clark less than a block, turned back & walked by me again, then crossed back & stood in front of the store again. He repeated the process twice. In the mean time a car parked on Clark as close to the bus zone as it legally could. Two people, a man and a woman were in it. She got out, went to the mailbox, and I assume put something in. I was not really watching her as my eyes were on the guy across the street.

She got in her car & the man crossed again (this time jaywalking through traffic), went right to the mailbox and removed something that was on the inside of the lid/door of the mailbox. I could not see what it was as he palmed it as he grabbed it. The tiny edge sticking out looked like white folded paper or a small envelope. He walked about halfway down the the block, went into a building. The man who was in the parked car must have gotten out once the woman was back in (while I was again busier watching the man from across the street) as he emerged a moment later from the building the other man just entered. He got in the car and they left.

I assume people wouldn't use a mailbox for legal exchanges (other than mail of course) but the process does not make sense to me. Why not do a hand to hand exchange? Isn't using a mailbox riskier? I could've grabbed whatever it was before the man crossed the street if I had a clue that there was something to grab and was so inclined. I am not even sure if and how I should report it and if doing so is worth it as I did not see anything criminal occur other than jaywalking. Any explanations or advice?

  • I just went on a walk with the Positive Loitering crew. The community officer said if you see something that doesn't look right, call it in. Don't worry about wasting their time. They will be happy to hear from you.

    CHICAGO - The 606 is busy these days with joggers, strollers, dogs, skateboarders - and dog skateboarders? A mutt took to The 606 on wheels recently - and in a stylish floral print shirt - in a video for Figo Pet Insurance, a Chicago-based startup.

Tenement Conditions in Chicago, 1901

1412 W. Morse, c.1915

    Ultra Local Geography: Tenement Conditions in Chicago, 1901
    I've always been fascinated with the work done by early progressives in addressing social problems of the city. I'm especially interested in the graphic tools they used to analyze the issues and illustrate their recommendations. Before digitization these reports were often hard to access for non-academics, but now they're available to anyone with a computer.
