Man Sexually Attacks Runner, Asks If They Can Keep in Touch: Prosecutors

According to prosecutors, Reliford admitted he touched and kissed the woman and threatened her with a BB gun. Police uncovered surveillance footage that shows the pair walking near Fullerton and Cannon.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

The attack happened about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday as the woman jogged in the 2200 block of North Cannon Drive, authorities said. Reliford allegedly approached from behind and pulled what appeared to be a gun.

The woman immediately notified security and called police, who arrested Reliford in the 300 block of West Armitage Avenue at about 10:20 p.m., according to an arrest report. He told authorities he'd watched the woman jogging on previous occasions, Dibella said, and police recovered a BB gun.

Moving Rules

Yesterday a large moving truck was parked in the alley behind my building all day.
It blocked access for residents. If you are moving please get parking signs from the alderman's office and post them. This will allow the truck to park during the day and not block the street or alley.

  • K Grace Nanny agency, SitterCity.com or Care.com. I used SitterCity with good results and have friends who used the other two options with good results as well. Community or Church Mom groups are also good resources as well.

Cars Broken In To

Woke up to see at least three cars broken in to all in the 2600 block of southport and all with tons of bags and other items that a thief would find attractive to rummage through. People people people, let's work on this. Knowing that there will be items to take in an area will keep these thieves coming back. A friendly morning PSA.

Recount today, Wed., at 1 PM of 2 remaining precincts

Per the people at the Chicago Board of Elections, there was some kind of vote consolidation problem in the two precincts in the 43rd ward that have not yet been counted. The votes from these two precincts will be recounted today at 1 PM. The person I spoke with did not say how long that would take,

    Do you happen to know how the 2 precincts are divided based on the picture shown here ? It seems like the Michelle has already lost most of the Lake Shore Drive votes which represents their lack of knowledge of what's going on within the rest of the ward (mostly single family homes) and the people who live and drive through the ward on a regular basis,( i.e. how familiar are the high riser's with the already heavy traffic on Fullerton and the addition of 2 high rise buildings further blocking up the area, etc ?)
    We can only hope and pray that these uncounted votes are for Caroline.

  • The final two precincts, 6 and 41, have been counted. Provisional ballots and absentees yet to come.

Metal Front Gate- Door Issues with Weather Changes

I have one of the standard newer build black metal gates around my front "yard" with a door buzzer/release and have found it to be a PITA. Specifically, over the past year or two, with the significant temperature fluctuations, I have had to (a) add and remove washers depending on the temperature (with the expansion and contraction of the metal) and (b) replace the electric door release component because the strike plate broke due to the pressure put on the...

I have one of the standard newer build black metal gates around my front "yard" with a door buzzer/release and have found it to be a PITA. Specifically, over the past year or two, with the significant temperature fluctuations, I have had to (a) add and remove washers depending on the temperature (with the expansion and contraction of the metal) and (b) replace the electric door release component because the strike plate broke due to the pressure put on the plate when the door gets very tight. Based on these issues, my door release mechanism is virtually useless for most of the year. Not something that keeps me up at night but it does send me to the hardware store more often than I would like...

Since there are a ton of this style of gate throughout the area (and I'm assuming a lot have the door buzzer/release feature, though whether or not that is relevant to my question, I don't know), I am interested in hearing from anyone who has encountered and resolved this issue. (I have asked a locksmith and handyman about this issue but no one had a good answer for me.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Jason1977 Pretty new to Pilsen

    I've seen people add an arch (or similar structure) over the gate. This may help with the two posts on each side of the gate pushing in towards each other when the metal expands.

  • Art

    The problem is the fence the gate is attached to. We have a similar problem. The post our gate is attached also supports the metal fence in front of our home. The entire length of the fence expands or contracts with the weather. So the best way to resolve the problem is to divorce your gate from the fence. Attached the gate to a metal post that is not attached to the reminder of the fence. That way the expansion/contraction of the metal fence is not translated to your gate.

Dog Sitter?

Many good reviews and a couple good leads on rover.com, but we're curious to know if any LP neighbors here can recommend a good dog sitter.

    Rover is great! I'm a sitter on there and I would really advise meeting with a sitter who you think sounds good ahead of time. That way you can make sure that your dog will be comfortable at the person's home and you can avoid any potential issues. Also, if you use code VALERY20, you get $20 free in dog sitting (even if you don't use me I think). In my opinion, Rover is way better than having your dog be at a kennel or doggy daycare because it's more relaxing for them and they get one on one attention and love.

Handyman needed

I'm looking for a handyman recommendation to help with work in crawl space. I have damage to outer wall that needs work right away before spring rains. I am not on Angie's list or any other so I'm starting here for local suggestions. Thanks.

  • Glad to hear it worked out for you- if you don't mind my asking what the going rate? (both for Xavier and a good handyman around here in general?)

  • citygal05 LP neighbor

    I really don't know the rate locally. My job was out of the norm so I asked for complete quote.
