20th & 24th District Police Blotter, by Mark Schipper

The victim, 28, said he was on the sidewalk on the 5400 block of N. Sheridan Rd. talking on his cell-phone when he was robbed. A man had approached, pointed a gun at his face and ordered him into the alley, he said. 

A 53-year-old woman walking home from work was punched in the eye Oct. 15 on the 5200 block of N. Kenmore Ave. and robbed. 

Two men knocked a 55-year-old woman to the ground near 1200 W. Winnemac Ave. in Uptown before robbing her the morning of Oct. 15.

Officers arrested two 17-year-olds for a beating and robbery that occurred Oct. 9 on the 1400 block of W. Fargo Ave.

Beat officers monitoring the radio heard the flash message detailing the robbery and stopped two men matching the descriptions in an alley off the 1400 block of W. Jarvis Ave. 

The woman had been with her daughter on the 2600 block of W. Granville Ave. when she was attacked. Her daughter said a black male in his late teens or early-20s had checked her mother to the ground while she crossed the street near Talman Ave.

Officers arrested a known gang member Oct. 17 in Rogers Park for allegedly firing into a vehicle on the 1600 block of W. Juneway Terrace just over a week earlier.  

Stevon Browner, 20, was taken into custody on the 1600 block of W. Howard St. and charged with aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm, police said.

  • Helen North of Howard for 50 + years

    Mama, there are actual printed copies of News-Star (and probably Inside-Booster too). It's rarely worth looking through. It's the sad remains of what once was a good local newspaper, published in a building that stood where the Peterson Garden Project installed the gardens on Howard this year.
