DRIZZLY: Police Handle Several Calls, Take No Reports Overnight

The wind and drizzle of today’s early hours brought a handful of calls for police help in Boystown and Wrigleyville, but none of the street incidents resulted in reports being filed.

Here is a look at what happened while you slept:

1:53 AM a caller reported two men arguing over shoes in the 700 block of W. Roscoe, with one man refusing to give the other his footwear. The caller believed the incident was a robbery in progress. Police were on the scene within 30 seconds, but no one was found on the street.

1:56 AM in light of the above incident, the sergeant in charge of the Boystown and Wrigleyville sector created a 5-car robbery mission team for the area as a precaution.

2:07 AM a caller reported that is friend was jumped by a group of males at Belmont and Clark. The attackers were said to have fled into the Subway restaurant at 901 W. Belmont. When police arrived, the caller stated that the attackers had moved to the Belmont L station. At the same time, CTA police were taking at least one person into custody for jumping turnstiles at Belmont. Police were unable to confirm if the turnstile jumpers were the attackers because the victim of the beating walked away from police.

3:42 AM an attendant at the 3224 N. Halsted parking garage reported several “homeless” people sleeping in the back of the facility. Officers cleared the area.
