RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY: Curious Gents Jackrabbit Away From Cops

A witness reported two men behaving suspiciously in the alley between Buckingham and Aldine, east of Halsted around 5 o’clock this morning. According to the caller, two men, one of whom wore khaki pants, were looking into car windows and pulling on car doors as they walked along.

Quickly-responding officers arrived in time to see the subjects, one of whom was further described as male, black, 6-feet tall, wearing a sleeveless white t-shirt, hop a fence and run northbound in the 600 block of Buckingham. A citizen reported seeing them continue running northbound past Broadway United Methodist church. The individuals were not located.

Coincidentally, minutes after the suspects fled Buckingham, at 5:13AM, a resident reported a man stealing money from an apartment building’s laundry room in the 700 block of Brompton. The offender, described as male, black, 6’4″ to 6’5″ tall with braided hair who wore a gray t-shirt, and a baseball hat, was gone when officers arrived.
