Lakeview Woman Awakened By Burglars Saturday Morning; After Sharp Decline, Break-Ins Spike

These tips work on our side of the pond, too. | West Midlands (England) Police

While our area has enjoyed a 27% decline in burglaries compared to last year, there are indications that break-ins are on the rise—most likely the work of a small number of criminals who’ve found a nice hunting ground, police say.

Most recently, a Lakeview woman was awakened at 5:00 this morning by two men who forced their way through her back door in the 600 block of West Briar.

The woman hid in the closet while the offenders combed through her home, but the men managed to get away before police arrived.

The burglars were described only as two men who carried a flashlight or a cellphone light.

The 19th District, which stretches from Fullerton to Lawrence and from the Chicago River to Lake Michigan reported 65 burglaries between July 1 and August 3. There were 64 burglaries in the district during the same period last year.

Year-to-date, the district has reported 355 burglaries, down sharply from the 489 recorded as of this time last year.

About CWBChicago 4360 Articles
CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets.
