WEEKEND RECAP: 2 Robbed, 2 Tazed

Can’t beat that for a great weekend, huh? Here’s a recap of what went down while we soaked up the sun:

• Two robberies were reported in the immediate area. Police arrested the offender who robbed a 7-Eleven and one of its customers Saturday night in the 1100 block of Belmont. But the two men who robbed a victim early Saturday morning in the Southport area managed to get away.

• On the burglary scene, a Wrigleyville resident was awakened at 2:30AM Saturday by two ski mask-wearing burglars who were in his living room. Earlier in the week, a man arrested during an attempted burglary in the area two months ago pleaded guilty to 3 break-ins and received a 9-year prison sentence.

• Two men who refused to comply with police in separate incidents this weekend wound up on the wrong end of Tasers

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets. Our editorial email address is news@cwbchicago.com
