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,

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
