JACK ASS: What Not To Do When Cops Tow Your Ride

A 19th district tactical officer was intrigued when she heard a report come out at 3:10 this morning of an attempted carjacking near Clark Street and Irving Park Road, just north of Wrigleyville.

The victim told officers that a male, Hispanic, 5’11” tall, 250 pounds, wearing a white t-shirt just tried to rob him of his car.

It just so happens that the description of the would-be carjacker is a nearly perfect match for a man from the far northwest side Dunning neighborhood whose car was towed by the tactical unit minutes earlier.

The known suspect was last seen eastbound on Irving Park Road from Clark Street. He was on foot, of course.

No police report was filed.
