Think crime problems are limited to Oakland because of the massive police staffing reductions and budget deficit problems? If so, read on.
And see the video: “Chicago Scream Mask Robber In South Side Robs Parents At Gunpoint”
The South Side Of Chicago is the focus of a series of crimes involving a young black male who wears a mask from the movie “Scream,” and his partner-in-crime, another young African American male who drives the getaway car.
The news reports describe the pair as follows:
The robber who has worn the mask is described as black, between ages 15 and 20 and standing between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11, wearing dark clothing. The man who is believed to have been driving the SUV, which is either grey or white, possibly a Saturn or GMC, is also believed to be a black man between the ages of 18 and 22, with dreadlocks and also wearing dark clothing.
The pair robbed this blogger’s parents on Wednesday night at 10 PM, September 5th. After the crime, they got into a car that from analysis of the information would seem to be a 2000 Toyota 4Runner SUV, silver or tan in color. Given that silver is the common color for that make, it’s more likely it was that color.
News reports have the pair committing the “Scream Mask” crimes in South Side’s Jackson Park Highlands and Woodlawn neighborhoods, but they have driven further south than those areas, as far as 90th and South Chicago, from reports. Area detectives say that Anyone with information about their location should call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
But many say a Yahoo Group should be set up where anyone can post an online trail of the pair. That can help detectives.
Chicago Police Department District 4 is the division responsible for handling some of the reports related to this incident. But based on the video report, and the experience of this blogger’s parents, the department has not given many of these robberies top priority, and from sources, will not unless one is physically harmed.
This blogger’s Mother is without an ID, as it was stolen, and needs a completed police report from the division. The division wrote the original report incorrectly, and then inexplicably marked it “Rejected.”
Meanwhile the perpetrators are at large, and no one knows where they are, except that they have been working the South Side Of Chicago.
