Rainy weather usually means criminals will be less active.
But rain did not dampen the spirits of ladies in the 19th district last night. The fairer sex went on a robbing and beating spree that stretched far and wide:
8:17PM Thursday – A masked woman pulls a handgun and robs another woman on the street near Belmont and Damen, then flees in an older model tan car with three other occupants. The Ukranian Village resident loses a black and white Billabong backpack containing her wallet and iPhone. Police return some of the property after a passer-by finds it near the Metra tracks at Belmont and Ravenswood. Offender description: Female, black or Hispanic, 5’4″ tall, 200 pounds, wearing a mask, and armed with a small revolver. CPD case HX310669.
1:00AM today – A woman is arrested for battering a police officer along the Lincoln Avenue bar strip just north Fullerton. Officers are there to handle a call in which a man said someone broke his wrist. The injured officer is treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center and the woman goes to jail. CPD cases HX310953 and HX310969.
1:03AM today – A woman is arrested at Scarlet bar on Boystown’s Halsted strip after allegedly punching a doorman.
3:22AM today – Over on Western Avenue, a woman kicks a 7-Eleven worker who tried to prevent her from stealing a bottle of wine. The clerk was not successful. The woman, a man, and the wine are last seen heading eastbound on Grace in a black Pontiac. Description: An older white woman driving a black Pontiac. She was accompanied by a man who is only described as black.
Pride Really Is Here!
This may be the most fabulous name we’ve ever heard broadcast by officers in Boystown: “Celine Diaz.”
