Broken Car Window

My car was parked in front of my building at the corner of Grace and Linder between Friday, Jan12th 3pm- Sunday, January 14th 4pm. Sometime within the two days, the driver side front window was broken. The body does not have any damage and nothing was taken from within the vehicle.

Did this happen to anyone else? Did anyone happen to see anything? My insurance deductible is $500 so I'm probably going to pay out of pocket to have the glass replaced. Does anyone have any neighborhood recommendations of where I can take my car?

Thanks for any tips,

    Your exes and my exes sound like matches on eharmony. I now only date guys w cars. They are less likely to smash my car windows in fear of retaliation.

    i go to grand auto glass 3855 w grand ave 773-489-2000

    i recommend calling at least 3 places most will come to your home or office. i also recommend getting used glass you cant tell the difference and its cheaper. I had to replace my windshield on a 2014 sonata and it cost me $225 for used glass they wanted $525 for new glass

Scam! Man steps in front of my car, fakes injury, and says "Give me $50 and I'll forget about it."

A man stepped in front of my car at Henderson & LeClaire, just as I started to pull out into the intersection. He pretended to be hit, and then did his best LeBron James flop onto the pavement. WAY overacting and obviously trying to scare me into thinking I'd done something wrong. I stopped my car and got out. He was a middle aged man, and was talking (or pretending to) on his phone in a slavic language. I asked...

A man stepped in front of my car at Henderson & LeClaire, just as I started to pull out into the intersection. He pretended to be hit, and then did his best LeBron James flop onto the pavement. WAY overacting and obviously trying to scare me into thinking I'd done something wrong. I stopped my car and got out. He was a middle aged man, and was talking (or pretending to) on his phone in a slavic language. I asked him what he wanted to do, and he kept trying to pretend I hit him. After about 5 minutes, he said "you can go" and then finally said "give me $50 and I'll forget about it." I didn't give him anything and drove away. A**HOLE!!!!!! This happened about 5:50PM on Jan 10th. Don't fall for this scam.

    I agree with NW-sider! Stay in your car, do exactly as he advises and call the police if you need. I'm just glad your are ok and nothing came of the situation. It could have been much worse, like leading to robbery or car jacking!

    That was the worst acting job I have ever seen.

Neighbor got robbed at gun point in alley.

A male African American robbed one of the neighbors at gun point by Addison and Long on Friday, December 15th around 7:30pm as he was in his garage. I saw the suspect running from the alley in all black crossing Addison going southbound and reported it to the police. The male was about 6ft tall, skinny build, really dark skinned, and in his early 20's. Not sure if the suspect was with others or alone.

Neighbors in the area have said there has been a string of attacks. Please be aware of your surroundings.

Police activity near Berteau and Parkside

I am at work but heard about police activity in the area. Does anyone know what happened?

  • Dan G Scratch and win

    Could be one of the many misc shots fired every other night. Or the new outstanding citizens that have been lurking around after 10ish every night. Stay safe and be aware.

  • Dan you were close, report says person with a gun. Cops couldn’t find him

Vandals on Long again.

Came home yesterday to two holes (quarter sized) in the side of my house on long/warwick. I originally thought something thrown from a car, but, no broken glass or pieces on sidewalk. There was some type of clear liquid splattered, but, not paint. I remember something similar nearby involving paint pellets shot from a car. Could be the same, but, not paint. Could also be the schmuck group of kids who walk home from portage elementary and like to throw rocks and act like punks. Either way, I'll be alerting the police. This will be tough to stop if it's random drive byes. Photos too big eb says.

    Pretty discriminatory that a guy a mere 2 years older has his face plasterd online but the other two dont. I remember back in the 90s some guts under 18 were arrested for burning a cross on some interracial couples lawn by montrose and lincoln and they had their faces on the news.

  • Eric Pepeson NW-side deplorable, based-stickman, commie-crusher

    Was this for the suspects caught carjacking? You want to know what's even worse April, you might have already read it, but they are only being charged with a misdemeanor. What a slap in the face to the victim!

    Again i agree. But i prefer to be vigilant without holding onto the fear factor. Its possible. Im glad to see your fear is based on some more real dangers these days vs a couple months ago when you were fearing Milo and the plan of white supremacists -- extreme bigots, people with differing opinions -- and their (percieved)plan to enlist young Americans in our neighborhood.

    And that's according to the Chicago Fibune, so it's probably up at least twice what they "reported."

    Chicago's Safest And Most Dangerous Neighborhoods Based On Shootings
    Last week I posted on Chicago's safest and most dangerous neighborhoods based on the murder rate. Although that's a pretty popular way for people to make a determination of a neighborhood's relative safety it's actually a pretty narrow definition. A lot of bad things an happen to people without them getting murdered.

Trespassing/break in 5800 block of Grace

A man (close cropped dark hair, 5'7"-5'10" in a blue hoodie wearing a dark jacket) trespassed on our property and urinated on our fence. We have extra latches on our gates and these were undone in order to get into our yard. We have filed a report with the police.

    Irish car bomb i feel like your an eb celebrity but never was graced with your prescence. I think jeff mentioned you as if you dissappeared and was pondering about your real life identity. You must have left quite an impression on him. Although he does give the impression he likes to inflate peoples importance including his own.
