Park Ridge Police Investigate Criminal Damage to Vehicle Incidents

On June 7, 2016  at approximately 7:44 pm, Park Ridge Police responded to the area of 600 N. Talcott Road for the report of a shattered car window. The 70 year old female victim stated her driver’s side window shattered as she drove north on Talcott Road near the 600 block. Park Ridge police officers responded and they observed a small hole in the window, likely caused by a BB or similar projectile. While on scene investigating the damage, two additional victims approached officers and stated that they also just had windows damaged on their vehicles. One, a 44 year old Park Ridge man advised that his rear passenger window shattered as he drove in the 2400 block of Talcott Road. The other, a 45 year old Park Ridge man stated that his rear passenger window was shattered as he drove north on I-294 adjacent to the location of the first incident. No one was reported to be injured.

A witness reported seeing two male, white teens, one wearing a black shirt and holding what appeared to be a BB gun, running through the wooded area near the first incident. Police set up a perimeter, searched the area but were unable to locate any suspects.

For the time being, Park Ridge Police recommend keeping car windows up when driving along the wooded area on the west side of the city to provide some added protection from potential projectiles.
