WHACK FRIDAY: Battery Near I-Hop, Burglary On Stratford As The Hood Begins To Thaw

Several callers reported that two men were fighting near the IHop at Grace and Halsted this afternoon. A police officer was injured during the effort to restore the peace.

It turns out that the incident actually involved a 30-year-old woman who struck a man on the street, causing the man to “go berserk” shortly before 1PM.

The combative woman was taken to Illinois Masonic for an evaluation. Initially logged as a battery in CPD record HX184477.

Stratford Burglary

The burglary scene has been relatively quiet in our neck of the woods since a serial burglar who’s accused of running rampant through Wrigleyville was arrested last month.

That will be little solace to the owner of a condo in the 600 block of Stratford Place, though.

A neighbor found the first-floor residence door wide open around 12:30 this afternoon and police confirmed that burglars had forced their way into the unit.

CPD record HX184465 lists the incident as a forcible entry burglary.
