GET OUT!: Woman Awakened By Burglar In Her Living Room

A Lincoln Park woman Wednesday became the latest resident to come face-to-face with our area’s burgeoning burglar population.

The victim told police that she woke up just before 5 o’clock this morning and discovered an unknown man in her living room in the 800 block of Lill. The intruder, who had entered through the back, ran out of the woman’s front door upon being discovered.

Nothing was taken in the incident, which will not be recorded in Chicago police department crime statistics because the victim did not file a report.

The intruder was only described as being a man in a blue hoodie.

Other burglaries to report:

  • A break-in was discovered moments after it occurred around 5AM Sunday in the 1000 block of Byron.
