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.

  • Pretty sure I saw these guys on the back porch of my building last night..

    Pulled up to the back of our building at Ada & Huron (parked on Ancona) where there were at least 2-3 black males on the back porch. One guy had a black cap and another had short dreads. Once they saw us pull up, they went running down the gangway between the buildings and hid by our side door (where we were heading). Called the cops but they never showed up..

  • Jon Banks supervisor banks

    I've seen two men fitting that description around Eckhart Park (Elizabeth St., Noble St & Chestnut St) looking into parked cars for the past week. I've a called the police each time.

  • 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!

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...

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 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.

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

  • The Fox & The Hounds F&H: Chicago's only Burlesque Rock N' Roll Band

    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.
