Suspicious black gentleman

Heads up folks. We live on the 4100 block of Francisco. We get a ton of deliveries during the Holidays and I have the drivers put them between the doors of my foyer and then close the door, it locks automatically. My son was walking home this afternoon and when he was a few doors down he saw a black gentleman walk up our porch and pull on the door. When he couldn't get it open he left. Sure wish it was me walking down the street!

  • Wow Smarty, sometimes you are too much. Sorry my young son was more worried about his safety and the safety of his little sister. It was you nor or I or Phillip coming home to this, it was two young children. Shame on you.

    I think things like coat color are things to keep an eye out for or shoes or hat. I wear the same coat everyday and alternate between two pairs of shoes. I wear the same hat and scarf. Im aware everyone is not as bundled up as i am but i think its a good idea to get it in peoples heads to watch out for not so often reoprted things such as clothing items.

Indecent Exposure-Alert

This morning at about 9:10 AM, a man was sitting on the SE corner of W. Grace at N. Sacramento fully exposed and masturbating in his car. He had a medium swarthy complexion, tall and a thin build. The car was a medium gray Sedan from the mid 2000s. I am not sure of the model. I called 911 after I got away from there with my dogs. By the time I came back around 25 minutes later he was...

This morning at about 9:10 AM, a man was sitting on the SE corner of W. Grace at N. Sacramento fully exposed and masturbating in his car. He had a medium swarthy complexion, tall and a thin build. The car was a medium gray Sedan from the mid 2000s. I am not sure of the model. I called 911 after I got away from there with my dogs. By the time I came back around 25 minutes later he was gone. I never heard sirens in the area so I suspect if a squad did come, he was gone by the time. The school bell rings at Cleveland School at 8:30AM, I hope he wasn't there before 9:10 because tons of kids walk right past there on their way to school. He was definitely looking around to see who could see him do it and I unfortunately made eye contact. Won't unsee that for the rest of my life.

  • Very disturbing and Sadly, we have a lot of elderly,families/kids in this area that could have been exposed to this.

    CPD is aware and hoping for more patrol in the area

    Thank you for reporting this, Michelle. So sorry that you had to go through this. Glad it didn't turn into actual physical contact, but I'm sure it was traumatizing nonetheless.

    I once had an ATT technician drilling through the side of my 1899 Vintage building without my permission. Yep, he was using a huge drill bit and had permanently damaged my vintage brick. It was already too late, as I stopped him while he was caulking the first and second holes....yep, he lied and said that he didn't need the building owner's permission because the tenants permission was all that was required...WTF!!

Winter overnight parking ban starts today on Foster, Kedzie and Milwaukee Ave

No parking from 3am to 7am on Foster (between Clark and Cental), Kedzie (Irving Pk to Bryn Mawr) and Milwaukee (Cental/Foster intersection to downtown).

You're looking at $60 ticket plus $150 towing fee. This is regardless of snow or not. Technically it started early this morning and I'm sure there are some unhappy drivers today.

Also, on most of the major roads, i.e. Lawrence, Peterson, Kimball, Montrose you're subject to a ticket/two if there is two inch of snow on the ground, regardless of day/time. So beware.

Very persistent scammer (Energy Company) on Monticello

Watch out neighbors! I just had a ridiculously persistent Direct Energy (I think) scammer come to the door. I said I was not interested and did not open the door. He wouldn't leave my porch and kept telling me I needed to update my records to keep my service. Wouldn't leave even after I threatened to call the police. I went to get the phone to actually call them and he took off and was gone before I could even call.

Don't open your door to this guy and don't engage. Very persistent and the message is likely confusing for some as he was insisting on me verifying my gas and electric bills to continue my service.

If persistent scammers try to engage in discussion "through a closed door", tell the scammers you only take visitors by appointment and invite them to call the contact number on your account to make an appointment.

    No one should EVER open their door to strangers calling; an entry door is a defensive line. Police reports cite some home invasions involving a ruse to get people to open their door (gas leak, fire, etc.), then the offenders forced their way inside the homes.

I heard from neighbors that this electric pole was moved a few years ago when the electric company was doing work. Apparently the previous home owner didn't complain or try to intervene. Now that it's my house, it's my problem. I've tried to contact ComEd to move the pole but don't know where to start (or should I contact my Alderman instead)?

Has anyone had a similar situation and if so will ComEd move the pole? This seems to be their mistake / error and they should have known better than to block garage access. Appreciate any thoughts.
