|Two burglaries of occupied apartments were reported on the Boystown strip late Monday and early Tuesday.|
Burglars busted into two occupied apartments in Boystown on Monday night and early Tuesday, scaring the daylights out of their victims, but leaving no one injured. Both of the break-ins took place in the 3200 block of North Halsted Street.
• Around 10:20 p.m. on Monday, a woman fled to her bedroom after a man kicked in the door of her second-floor apartment. The woman—who didn’t have access to her phone in the bedroom—was able to notify a friend online and he reported the break-in to police. An evidence technician recovered a skull cap that the offender left behind.
• At 3:20 a.m. on Tuesday, an unknown man kicked in the front door of another apartment just a few doors north of the first victim’s home. The offender fled when he was confronted by one of the apartment’s residents.
Another forcible-entry burglary was reported in the 2900 block of North Seminary last Wednesday. That break-in is believed to have taken place during the day when the residence was unoccupied.
