 Alta Vista Terrace as seen on Curbed Chicago

The burglary of a home on Wrigleyville’s historic Alta Vista Terrace was foiled Monday when a flood of police responded to a neighbor’s 911 call. Three offenders were arrested.

Police got the call reporting three men entering the back door of a landmark home in the 3800 block of Alta Vista at 3PM. Two of the intruders were peeled off of the home’s roof and the third was found hiding in a window well.

Demetrius P. Hill, 18, faces charges of criminal damage to property, criminal trespassing, and violating conditions of bail. The other two arrestees are juveniles.

One-block-long Alta Vista Terrace is listed on the U.S. Register of Historic Places and is a U.S. Historic District and Chicago Landmark.

CPD case HX315626.
