WRIGLEY: Several Arrests, Man With Gun Escapes

The Wrigleyville police manpower sponge sucked up the district’s resources as usual overnight. One offender with a gun escaped capture:

1:14AM—One arrest for stealing from the bar at Deuces and The Diamond Club, 3505 N Clark.

1:45AM—Five men fighting in front of John Barleycorn, 3524 N. Clark. At least one arrest.

1:52AM—Fight in front of Moe’s Cantina, 3518 N Clark.

1:55AM—An off-duty officer reports a battery in progress at the intersection of Eddy and Seminary streets. One person is seen retrieving something from a silver Ford SUV.

Officers determine that a group of four men and women “jumped” another group on the street. Two females are arrested, the other offenders escape toward Clark Street.

One of the men who got away is armed with a handgun.

Two victims who “got beat pretty good” are treated by an ambulance crew.
