CORNELIA: Foot Chase Ends With Arrest Of Suspected Burglars

Two suspected burglars are in custody after a foot chase through Boystown this morning.

A 911 call just before 11AM reported two suspicious men entering the rear of a residence in the 900 block of Cornelia. Arriving officers stopped the men in the alley near Cornelia and Halsted, but one of the suspects took off running.

After a foot pursuit through the alleys, police arrested the runner in the 3500 block of Reta.

Earlier this morning, two residents reported their homes burglarized in the 800 block of Cornelia. It is not clear if the two men taken into custody today are responsible for those crimes.

Police and a witness describe today’s offenders as white men wearing hoodies. At least one had tattoos on his face.

The investigation continues.
