Audible from near Race and Damen, but no idea about direction. I haven't heard any sirens yet, and I'm not exactly standing in the window to look out to see what might be going on.

    The police should have arrived within ten minutes of your 911 call

  • Robin, you're assuming 911 was called. CPD doesn't necessarily arrive with sirens blaring, especially when traffic is light. The also circle the area looking for shooters leaving the area. It's not like the $hitheads shoot and then hang around waiting for the PoPo.

1. a man (or a group of two) will come by your car-examine it for dents and claim to be able to repair it on the spot

2. A "roofer' stops by-claiming he noticed damage on your roof that can cause immediate problems and offers to repair it right then-for a reasonable cost.

3. a duo (usually) rings your bee-and wants to show you how you are being ripped off by Com Ed and Peoples Gas. They show you copies of Com Ed and Peoples Gas "bills" and how they can beat the prices you currently pay by signing on with their third party provider.

Robbery at gunpoint 2100 block Erie

My neighbor was robbed at 10pm tonight at gunpoint while pulling into the garage.

2 African American males (20-25yo one with an Afro) approached him after he pulled into the garage, ordered him out if the car and onto his knees facing the wall as they rummaged through the car and took his wallet, watch and cell phone.

Be aware at night everyone, especially in the alleys. These types of robberies seem to come in waves.

    Was this the Erie and Ohio ally or the Erie and Huron ally?
    There was an attempted garage break-in two nights ago in the 2100 block of Huron. Between Huron and Erie. Apparently the homeowner heard something and turned off the lights and looked out the window. The person must have heard or seen the home owner and ran off because they did not get it. The wood around the deadbolt was damaged as they tried to break the wood to pop open the deadbolt and the back gate to the ally was left open.

    If you have windows not in reach of anyone, keep them open at night to hear any issues that can come up. This is the only way the break in did not occur.

Be on the lookout for this Lost Chihuahua! Belushi was lost at Huron & Wood in the West Town Neighborhood of Chicago on Sept 15. Please share too!

  • Btw, Erica - I think your flyers were extremely helpful and well-placed. I saw them early on and realized that it was in my area so I'd been keeping an eagle-eye out for your pup. So glad that he was found! But much of that is because you did such a good job of getting the word out. Kudos!

West Town residents financing businesses

Hi, West Towners! As supporters of the stores and cafes in West Town, I wanted to share a new way to advocate for local businesses and create a stronger neighborhood economy.

Your many years of love for The Ugly Mug Cafe on Chicago Ave. has encouraged them to open for a second location. They are seeking customers, friends, and neighbors to fund a community sourced loan for the costs of construction. They chose this type of loan instead of traditional financing because they believe in the benefit of community involvement to growing the cafe and the neighborhood. FYI, they built their patio this year using this same lending method.

Check out how this works here:
