A man and a woman are charged with criminal trespassing for allegedly being on a boat at Diversey Harbor without permission around 2:30 a.m. on July 10.
A harbor security guard told police that he saw 29-year-old Natasha Laye of Chicago and 26-year-old Cornelius Kimbrough of Chicago Heights climb around a locked gate to enter the dock.
Under questioning, Kimbrough allegedly told police that he entered the harbor to have sex with Laye on a boat named Doing Nothing.
20-year-old Tevin Gentry may have saved $2.25 by walking through the handicap-accessible gate instead of paying a fare Monday morning at the CTA’s Roosevelt station, 22 East Roosevelt. But the penny-pinching passenger is now facing a much more expensive situation.
Undercover cops arrested Gentry on the platform around 10:10 a.m. and took the South Shore resident into the police station to process him for a routine theft of services charge.
During a custodial search of Gentry’s backpack, cops say they found a fully loaded Smith & Wesson 9-millimeter handgun with a 30-round magazine that contained 22 live bullets.
Now, in addition to the routine theft of services charge, Gentry’s been smacked with felony unlawful possession of a handgun and misdemeanor possession of a firearm without a valid Firearm Owner Identification Card.
His bail is set at $40,000. That’s enough money for 17,777 CTA train rides.
A Lakeview resident told police that an unknown man shoved him into a wall in the 700 block of West Cornelia and then ran away around 4 a.m. on July 14. Police said they found the alleged batterer in an alley behind the 800 block of West Roscoe “with his pants down…engaging in sexual intercourse with another unknown male.”
46-year-old Bryant Tyus of the 500 block of West Brompton is charged with battery and public indecency-sex act, according to court records.
