warmer weather brought by spring can often be accompanied by increased
criminal activity in the city. Since February several street crimes
have occurred in areas adjacent to the IIT campus:
• Along 31st Street, between Dearborn and Wabash, three batteries occurred in the late afternoon/early evening hours. In each incident, a group of juveniles approached an individual and then punched the individual before fleeing from the area.
• On the CTA 34th/35th Street Green Line platform, two strong-armed robberies occurred in the late afternoon/early evening hours. In both incidents, a group of juveniles approached an individual and demanded their wallet/cell phone before fleeing on a CTA train.
• On the 3400 block of south State Street at approximately 5:30 am, an individual was pepper sprayed and had their wallet taken by an unknown offender" = Han un ami de Singapour...
