A Cook County judge, citing allegations of an “intentionally brutal and heinous” attack, ordered a Des Plaines woman held without bail for allegedly tossing her 3-year-old nephew off of Chicago’s Navy Pier and then doing nothing as passersby and first responders tried to save the boy this week.
With Chicago police overwhelmed by Mexican Independence Day crowds in the Loop this weekend, 911 calls for help across two police districts stacked up and waited for hours because no cops were available.
A gunman fired an automatic weapon from a stolen car toward two occupants of another vehicle as the cars traveled across Chicago overnight, eventually leaving one man dead and a woman injured near Navy Pier.
The man accused of groping women in the downtown area while riding a one-wheeled motorized skateboard told Chicago police he targeted women who wore “hot and short” clothing that “they looked good in,” according to prosecutors.
Anthony Strozier is accused of stealing more than $55,000 worth of watches from a Magnificent Mile store just hours before police arrested him for allegedly hitting a River North bouncer in the head with a hammer.
