Public Safety Alert

From Captain McDonagh of the East Precinct:


Over the long weekend an incident occurred that is rare and unusual for the city. I am bringing this forward to the community as a safety reminder for everyone in the East Precinct.

Out of respect for the victim we are not providing the exact address or names. Time of Incident: aprox. 0330 am. Lovcation; In the area of the 100 blk, east of 12th Av and west of 16th Av

A female caller reported she was sleeping when she heard a noise outside her ground level bedroom window. She heard and saw a male attempting to enter her slightly open window. The victim screamed and the suspect fled without getting inside the location. Officers responded and conducted a suspect/evidence search but did not locate the suspect. Officers are continuing to patrol the areas and we request citizens call 911 when they note suspicious people loitering in their neighborhood.

Please take this information as a reminder to maintain your personal safety by securing your property, windows and doors, at all times.
