Assault At Dunkin Donuts On Belmont

Good morning, everyone. It's 9:48am. It's nice outside today (not because it's cold and there's a foot of snow out there, but because it's sunny). Anyway, I'll be here all day, monitoring 25, as usual. So, here's crime for today.

we're beside ourselves with all the mayhem around here as of late. I just want you to know that your blog has been invaluable to us, we check it constantly when things are happening around here. THANK YOU You're helping us homeowner citizens! Don't know what we'd do without you..xxoo ERICA
PS my husband saw the kids running and the guy with the dog and told the cops about it. This is the 3rd rash of shootings in our immediate area. We're really worried.

I'm getting really worried about the mayhem in that area as of late too, Erica. There's been too many incidents as of late around that area to say nothing's happening. Something is happening, and something has got to be done.

I have no problem with informing the community of what's going on. I feel good about giving this information to the neighborhood. People need to know what's going on.

Thanks to your husband for letting the police know! From the sound of things on the scanner, the police were checking out the entire area for these offenders. I think they did a very good job.

I will continue to watch the area for further developments in this rash of shootings.

We are wondering if there is a new "element" that has moved into our area - we're seeing some kids we haven't seen before lurking around. There was also a big fight at 7pm that you noted at the laundromat on the 3700 block of Wrightwood. We're going to CAPS tomorrow night and will let you know if the cops have caught any of these shooters. Keep up your excellent work, it's been invaluable to us lately!!!

Seems like there is. There's been lots of incidents in that area lately. I think those kids you've never seen before are coming from another neighborhood to start trouble.

As for the fight, was it the one that was related to a fight at Fullerton and Ridgeway? If so, do you know what happened?

I'm glad to hear that you're going to your Beat meeting tomorrow night. If you can, can you also ask them what they plan on doing about the problems you guys are having over there. Tell them the crime blogger sent you, LOL (I'm just kidding). In all seriousness, they need to do something about all of the violence over there.
