That photo is from Ray, who says his car is the wheel-less Honda Fit reported by Justin in this comment on last night’s Junction wheel-theft report. That’s not the only car-targeting crime we have received word about today:
Somebody smashed Mark‘s car window near Fairmount Playfield. He says it appeared to be an isolated incident, at least on his block (5000 block of 38th SW – map), and he also sent a report of the weapon:
Two more reports to share, ahead:
These two are both from the same area, both from this morning, but we have no official info on them yet so can’t say whether they’re related. First, from M:
I live on Delridge/Trenton. My next door neighbor was robbed this morning. It was between 1030 and 1130. I’m not sure of the exact time. We heard some thumping next door and we thought it was our neighbor. Then we heard this loud noise and I looked outside and saw two black men running from my neighbors place. They were carrying what looked like a fax machine. My husband immediately called the police and they showed up. We gave them all the info they needed. It happened in broad daylight. My neighbor wasn’t home at the time. We’re not sure if the police caught these men. My neighbor is pretty shook up about this.
Not long after the time frame mentioned by M, Chris sent this in the noon hour (we went shortly afterward to see if the car was still there, but it was gone):
> My wife reports some kind of car chase ending at 16th and Trenton. Apparently at least two suspects jumped out of the car while it was moving and made a run for it. The car ended up in my neighbor’s retaining wall. … The police apparently were taking my neighbor to identify potential subjects.
