Loyola Redline Mugging This Weekend

I'm not seeing it in the news yet but apparently a young man was mugged Saturday night and has now died from the head trauma he sustained. A friend of his posted this on facebook. "He was found early Saturday morning at the Loyola station in Chicago. He was laying at the bottom of the stairs with his wallet missing and with serious head trauma."
This is all the info I have and just wanted my neighbors to be aware.

  • Any reason there hasn't been news coverage of this? Loyola trying to make the area look safer?

  • Update here from a friend of the victim who posted on FB:
    • The man was not mugged
    • The video system worked fine
    • Police reviewed the video
    • The man fell down the stairs without any witnesses there to help
    • Thieves came by minutes later and stole his wallet

Safety in Rogers Park

Hey all,

I'm a female in my 20s looking to move to Rogers Park in the spring and wanted to hear what you have to say about the safety of the neighborhood. It seems like there's been a lot of gun violence reported...has this always been an issue? Are there certain areas that are better than others? Are there any programs in the neighborhood to increase safety? Thanks for any advice!

    Grace Owner Set To Open New Restaurant Near Loyola
    The Loyola community will soon welcome a restaurant owned by Loyola alumnus Michael Olszewski, who owned recently-closed restaurant Grace. Olszewski plans to open Onward, a casual, fine-dining restaurant, beneath the Hampton Inn Chicago North-Loyola Station on North Sheridan Road. This comes after the sudden closing of the high-end downtown Grace.

    Thank you Jeffrey and No,
    Owen this is not a joke🤷🏻‍♀️
    The home is beautiful which is why we’re inquiring why it’s been on the market so long. Healthy , honest feedback is what we’re asking for , not sarcasm.

  • This is wonderful. Michael Oleszewski brings successful businesses to neighborhoods. This will bring jobs, tax revenue, pizzazz and a new restaurant. If Onward is half as successful as Grace was it will sparkle. Chefs are already asking Oleszewski to take over this new kitchen.

    It's great to have facts, not spin. Sorry a kid got shot. It's great the info was confirmed in real time. When is the feauxrage event?

  • Rob

    Funny how certain folks that made a big political stink about caring about the kid that was shot the same day as Cynthia Trevillion was murdered have been completely silent about this kids shooting.

Animal abuse

I saw this man and woman on a northbound red line tonight. I'm not sure when they got on, but somewhere around Fullerton or Clark/Division, and they were still on when I got off at Morse. They had a dog stuffed into a suitcase with it's head sticking out--the zipper appeared too tight on it's neck. They continually batted it's face and seemed almost like they were trying to stuff him inside further.

I confronted them and they seemed completely...

I saw this man and woman on a northbound red line tonight. I'm not sure when they got on, but somewhere around Fullerton or Clark/Division, and they were still on when I got off at Morse. They had a dog stuffed into a suitcase with it's head sticking out--the zipper appeared too tight on it's neck. They continually batted it's face and seemed almost like they were trying to stuff him inside further.

I confronted them and they seemed completely unconcerned about the mistreatment. I switched cars to call the police, and also informed the driver. Two other witnesses said that after I switched cars, the couple became verbally belligerent. I don't believe any action has been taken yet.

If you see these people carrying this dog around, please report to police or animal shelter!

  • Chicago Waldorf School reviewed

    I am a former student of the school and looking back, I can say it was a very rich and rewarding academic experience. Honestly, the biggest con of Waldorf is the cost of tuition, but you definitely get what you pay for. The other main concern is college prep. The curriculum certainly expands the creative mind and emphasizes a non standard approach to problem solving, but in the real academic world many students have problems adjusting to standardized tests and the rigors of college examinations.
