A concerned citizen flagged down an officer and reported that three “suspicious” individuals had just entered the Chase Bank vestibule in the 3700 block of N. Broadway around 8AM today.

The officer found and spoke with the young men, two 19 year-olds and one 25-year-old.

All of the men were sent on their way. The previous call by the man who said he was jumped after leaving the Center on Halsted around this same time had not yet been dispatched to officers.

The 25-year-old was also stopped by police around 11PM last night as officers investigated a report of a man being jumped by several offenders near the Lucky Horseshoe Lounge.

His last known address is the Howard Brown Health Center on Broadway.
