Husband And Wife Wrestle Burglar
This blog hereby awards two "virtual medals of valor" to the unnamed husband and wife who encountered a burglar at 5244 Camden on Saturday, according to recent 4th Precinct Highlights...
The incident happened Saturday at 1052 Hours, Incident 08-329911. A husband and wife tackled a male they found burglarizing their garage. The husband sustained a severe bite from the burglar, who fought like a terrified little Chihuahua/poodle mixed bitch and--this is not known for sure--may have actually wet himself in terror.
The husband also sustained (quite macho-looking) bruises to his eye and scrapes. Arrested was JEROME BURKHART, a 45-year-old piece of (expletive) with 8 CAPRS, arrested earlier in the month for burglary in the area of Lowry and Penn, plus he and his vehicle matched the description of an earlier attempted burglarly at 41st and Humbolt.
(My Fourth Precinct recap is certainly not EXACTLY the way the highlights are worded, obviously, though they are known to have their own subtle creativity)
Decent North Side citizens are FED UP and FIGHTING BACK.
