Boystown Woman Says Man Threatened To Kick Her Dog’s Ass….And Other Weird Tales

A Boystown woman told police that a complete stranger threatened to kick her dog’s ass at Halsted and Addison, prosecutors say. Now, 27-year-old Yusuf Humphrey is facing assault charges.


The woman saw Humphrey outside of Lakeview Lutheran Church, 835 West Addison, about a week after the alleged threat and she notified cops to have him arrested.

Humphrey is accused of approaching the woman near the Circle K gas station and saying “I’m going to kick your dog’s ass and your ass if you don’t move,” according to prosecutors. “You a dumb white bitch and need your ass kicked,” he allegedly said.

Humphrey was released on a $1,500 IBond.

Slick Sammy


An Uptown man who’s on probation for stealing 99 candy bars from a West Side hospital’s gift shop in May is now accused of shoplifting 19 jars of Vaseline.

60-year-old Sammy Wilson was arrested as he tried to walk out of the Uptown Family Dollar Store with the Vaseline around 7:15 p.m. on August 8. He’s charged with retail theft.

On June 30, Wilson received one-year’s probation after he pleaded guilty to retail theft charges for taking 49 Mr. Goodbars; 32 Kit Kats; and 28 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups from Mt. Sinai Hospital’s gift shop, according to court records.

Trick Question


Carrying out a good old fashioned Christian street conversion ain’t what it used to be in Chicago.

20-year-old Vincent Mosley approached a North Side man on the street near Chestnut and Michigan around 11:45 p.m. last Tuesday.

“Do you believe in Jesus Christ?” Mosley allegedly screamed as he grabbed the 26-year-old man and tried to strike him.

The man, apparently not interested in being “saved” at that particular moment, knocked Mosley down, called police, and pinned Mosley to the ground until cops arrived.

Mosley—a reputed Gangster Disciple street gang member—is charged with battery.

According to his arrest report, Mosley is also known as “The Reverend.”
