CWB was first to report on a home invasion in the 1800 block of Belmont this week.

Bryna Wolowic is accused of conspiring with Gary Wallace and Melvin Wilson to rob her brother and his three roommates at knife- and gunpoint inside the brother’s apartment.

Here’s a tip for home invasion newbies: If you get caught by cops after a foot pursuit, never, EVER say this:

“I didn’t have a gun. I just took some s***. I was with the girl.”

That’s what cops say Wolowic’s boyfriend, Gary Wallace Jr., told a 19th district lieutenant. Wallace is Wolowic’s boyfriend, although we suspect she may be having second thoughts.

Margarita Mayhem

Monday evening, cops were called to Cesar’s Mexican restaurant (Home of the KILLER Margaritas!) at Broadway and Oakdale after two women on the second floor got into a scuffle and one of them reportedly began Tazing the other repeatedly. The ladies were gone when police arrived.


Also Monday, a woman called 911 from the Unique Thrift Shop, 4445 Sheridan, to report that someone took her violin, bow, and case off of her shopping cart. Alleged value: $14,000.

Sorry, Wrong Profession

Officers were called to the Dunkin’ Donuts at 4645 N. Western Wednesday afternoon. According to a donut shop employee, a CTA employee came in and demanded free coffee. When the clerk said no, the employee “started cursing out the staff” and then stood outside the restaurant. Description: Male, Asian, 40, wearing a CTA hat and and orange jacket.
