Attempted car break in

Spotted a couple of guys (both African American early teens with short dreads) trying a couple of times to break into a newer station wagon parked on the 700 N. block of Noble St. at 6:30 pm. Called 911 and a patrol car drove by a few minutes later and spooked them off. They had been walking around the block a few times before going after this car so keep an eye out if you live in the area.

  • DA long time neighbor

    I saw these 2 guys Mon nite on the 800 block of Noble around 10pm. They were just standing there with no real purpose 2 be there as I know everyone on this block and they don't live there. These 2 soon crossed the street into Eckhart Pk so couldn't c where they went. B careful everyone!

  • The 2 black guys are always hanging around Eckhart Park. Caught both of them in my yard and I beat the s**t out of both of them. Please call the cops if you see any black person roaming your area....

Phone Scam / Harassment?

I just received a very strange call that I'm not sure what to make of. A man, who sounded black, very angry, said that I scratched his car and that I left my phone number on his car. For the record, I did not scratch anyone's car and I did not leave my phone number on anyone's car. When I started to explain that I did not scratch his car or leave my phone number on his car, his anger...

For the record, I did not scratch anyone's car and I did not leave my phone number on anyone's car. When I started to explain that I did not scratch his car or leave my phone number on his car, his anger escalated. I just hung up. He has not called back (so far).

Not even sure if I should report this to the police. Is this some sort of a scam? The phone number he was calling from is (312) 423-1221.

Just a heads up to you, my neighbors.

More Parks Please

In the article, Mr. Chacon doesn't mention new parks or green space. That should be a top priority for everyone who is invested in this neighborhood. http://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/2014/12/08/state-of-the-west-loop-development-from-the-pov-of-the-west-central-association-president/

  • Shannon - the WCA is a Chamber of Commerce and isn't directly representing residents as much as promoting business. If you want to get involved as a resident, there's groups such as Neighbors of West Loop which represent people like myself who live in this area. I know I've worked with them, and the predecessor organization, over the years (I'm a 14+ year resident in FRDA) to push for green space in our community, especially when a new development is approved.

Shooting

1470 block of West Ohio Street at 730pm yesterday there was a silver/ gray Toyota 4Runner who fired about 5-6 rounds. I'm not sure who they were shooting at. Cops were called but I don't know what the outcome was. It's not the first time that a shooting took place in the area, but it's scary that it seems to be happening earlier in the evenings. So please be careful out there.

    I was all concerned about out house being hit, I didnt even notice until last night that my car was also hit. I now have a bullet hole in the side panel in the front of my brand new car.

Car (neatly) broken into

Last night our car got "broken into" for the 2nd time this year. It's parked behind our condo building on Walton (Walton & Noble approx), in our designated parking space. This happened earlier this year, and what was interesting was that there was absolutely no damage to the car, so we thought we had just accidentally left the car unlocked. Since then, we've been extremely careful about making sure our car is locked after we park it. Well, it happened again last night with no damage. Nothing was stolen since we don't keep valuables in our car, but they did make a mess. Has this been happening to anyone else on Walton or in the area?

  • We had something similar in July - came home to our garage door open (no visible damage) and no damage to the cars. Things they could grab in the garage were stolen. Like you, nothing valuable is in there now. When we called the police, they said it was the third time that week that they had a similar report.

  • Please report the crime so we can have the cops due surveillance throughout the night... Thanks

    This happened twice to my boyfriend's car as well (Walton and Rockwell). They mostly just rummaged around and took loose change and his phone charger.

Cats living in apartment basement

I went to turn the lights off after People's Gas came to check on the meters. When I went down, I found that there are two cats living in the unfinished basement of the small walkup. They are coming in and out through a broken vent. When I found them, they quickly ran out of the room and huddled outside staring back at me. When I went outside, they were behind the neighbor's apartments together. They've since left. They look...

I went to turn the lights off after People's Gas came to check on the meters. When I went down, I found that there are two cats living in the unfinished basement of the small walkup. They are coming in and out through a broken vent. When I found them, they quickly ran out of the room and huddled outside staring back at me. When I went outside, they were behind the neighbor's apartments together. They've since left. They look well fed, but I'm thinking that they're feral. I don't know if they're lost cats; they didn't appear to have collars. There was at least one mouse/rat carcass in the basement.

I feel bad because it's cold out and they are surviving, but I don't want them to multiply and give birth in my apartment complex. Plus, it's easy for them to come up to the rest of the floors.

Does anyone have any advice for these cats? Who should I contact? My landlord?

  • Wendi on Maud Interested in local news

    If the cats are feral and have been spayed/neutered, the left ear has been "tipped". If not, Tree House Humane Society can help. Thanks for posting and asking for help!

Referrals Please for Snow Removal and Window Washer

We are a 9 unit residential building and looking for a snow removal and window washer service. We are located in east village. Any referrals would be much appreciated.

  • Hi, Scott at Urban Street Window Works is great. He's cleaned my windows twice for me. Very professional and great price. I've only used him in my condo but I'm sure he would do a building. I received a referral for him off this site. Thanks!

Starbucks girl, where are you?

I haven't been able to stop thinking about you since you caught me stealing glances of your reflection on the window. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. With your curly auburn hair and bright smile that I couldn't stop sneaking peaks at, you stole my heart. I'll watch your bag anytime. Will you watch mine?

Tall, auburn haired, long-legged beauty in your brown boots and knit wrap, please find me.

If you were at the Starbucks on Randolph & Morgan on Tuesday night, know that I wish I'd said more to you.

  • Oh and btw, I wave goodbye at a lot of women, doesn't mean I'm inviting them to look me up or that I have the right to do it myself.
