I just got the following alert from one of our Jargowood neighbors.
Yesterday, (Wed. 6/8) at approx. 8:00 a.m., there was a home invasion in the 1600 block of Jarvis.
The criminal broke the glass in the front door, entered the home, and was on his way up the front hall stairs to the second floor when the homeowner screamed and scared the guy back out the front door onto the street and a clean get-away. Yes, 911 was called and the 24th District cops took blood samples from the front porch. CSI has arrived in beautiful Jargowood.
The description of the criminal is “a young black guy in a white t-shirt and jeans”.
If you happened to see anything that might provides clues regarding this incident, please contact the 24th district police station: 312-744-5907. The police dept. web site also has an online crime reporting tool for non-emergency incidents.
It pays to be aware of what's happening around your home and your neighbors' homes. If you see a crime in progress, call it in via 911. We can all make a difference.
