Sticks And Stones

There was apparently a major fight this afternoon in the alley just north of Wilson between Beacon and Dover, involving three females and two males.  The female fight was two women beating a third very badly.  The male fight, which involved wooden sticks, spilled over into the parking lot at 4616 N Beacon.  A knife was recovered.  The police arrived and took at least three combatants into custody.

One female was hurt badly enough to require an ambulance, and one of the witnesses who wrote to us about it thinks she may have been stabbed.  She remained conscious.  Many witnesses called it in to 911 and the police responded quickly.

Update:  It must have been "Fisticuffs Night" in Uptown.  Later Friday evening, there were fights in front of Dunkin' Donuts at Wilson and Broadway and another at McDonalds at Sheridan and Wilson. Can we have another blizzard, please?


  1. Today's forecast:

    Partly cloudy with a chance of reign of bullets. Lowlifes tonight with a 38.

  2. ...may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me.

    It had to be said.

  3. I wonder it this escalated from thursday night. I had to call the police because there was about 10-15 kids between the ages of 11-15 harrassing this girl bad. They were circling around here and saying the most obscene things....especially for boys whose testicles probably haven't even dropped yet. They were also taking lunges at her as if to act like they were going to punch her.

    I called the police, and then they were all running away like she was a snitch or something. I hope this wasn't the same girl who got beat up in this story. It would really be like she couldn't avoid a problem because there is too many little criminals in this neighborhood. All these kids are like the kids from Lord of the Flies. They're like little's very sad to see a person that young that already has no chance at all in life.

    By the way, does anyone else feel like the numbers of trouble makers is multiplying?? This is going into my 3rd warm season here and I feel like there is more and more every time. If you live my Broncho Billy Park, you know what I am talking about.
