Crime Blotter For January 19, 2011

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:10pm. Another tiring day. But today was good :). As a matter of fact, these last few days have been really looking up for me. I haven't been this happy for a couple of months. It's just that good things have been coming my way lately, and I hope they continue to do so. Anyway, some things have changed meeting-wise for me this week. The breakfast I was going to attend on Saturday was postponed for another two weeks, so all I have this week is a Student Government meeting on Friday. And I'm glad, because I can catch up on my sleep this weekend, and do things I'd like to do. Then next week, I have final exams at school that I have to worry about. I hope I do good on those. Also, I'm monitoring until 4, then I'm going to take a break until 5:49, then I'll blog again until 6:49, and then I'm done for the night. Here's crime for this late afternoon and portions of early evening.

3:25pm - Some call over at 4160 W Fletcher.

3:31pm - Beat 2574 needs EMS at the corner of Wrightwood and Kostner.

4:00pm - I'm going to go until 5:49. I'll be back then.

5:49pm - I'm back.

6:00pm - Disturbance. Wabansia and Harding. Six males on the corner.

6:36pm - For those of you who live between Ridgeway and Central Park, Milwaukee to Diversey, can you e-mail me please? I'd like to ask a couple of questions. My e-mail is Thanks!

6:49pm - I'm going to go for the night. I'll be back tomorrow afternoon. Goodnight, everyone.

That corner of Wabansia and Harding always calls about teens hanging out do gang nonsense. A whole bunch of them live in the middle of the 1700 block of Harding. What else is there for them to do? Ain't no jobs out there...

Luke, just because there's no jobs doesn't give those kids a right to loiter all over the street corners and be involved with stupid gang activity. These kids could be involved with something positive, like some sort of club/activity after school, they could go to tutoring, and they can go to the park. Hanging on a corner is not a good thing. It will only lead to prison or you being six feet under.

These teens should be studying instead. Getting a good education will lead them to getting a good job later and leaving this gang crap behind.

I abouslety agree, F. These kids should study instead of being in this gangbanging non-sense. Like I said before, gangbanging only leads to prison time or you being six feet under.

Hi Timmy-
I really appreciate the news coverage you provide for our neighborhood. Since a lot of neighbors read your blog, could you let them know about the recent string of muggings that are occurring near the Logan BL station?

The pattern is that a car pulls into an alley ahead of a (female) pedestrian. Two or three guys get out and loiter ahead of the victim until she catches up. One pulls a knife; if the victim resists, she gets punched or knocked down. There's been at least 4 attacks with the similar descriptions. One victim described the perps as clean-cut Hispanic males. No saying whether the crimes are all by the same crew, but it's likely.

There are two threads in the LS neighborhood group:

Hi anonymous 2:51, I sure will inform our neighbors about the muggings. I will also put up the descriptions you provided and will also put the links up.

Thank you for this information. I'm sure our neighbors will appreciate it.
