Chicago News

CHICAGO — The office of 15th Ward Ald. Raymond Lopez has been vandalized once again.

The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. Thursday at the office near 47th and California in the Brighton Park neighborhood.

Surveillance video captures three men throwing pieces of brick or concrete through the office windows before fleeing the scene.

Ald. Lopez shared the videos on Twitter:

This is at least the third time the alderman’s storefront office has been attacked. Lopez tells WGN he believes the incident was retaliation after a gang leader was arrested Thursday. 

No one is in custody.

Ald. Lopez, once again, called out Mayor Lori Lightfoot in a tweet Friday morning, saying: “By all means keep sending our officers downtown Mayor! At what point will she & Brown realize their policies are fueling brazen acts like this? I will push on but my residents are sick of living in fear b/c criminals know they have the upper hand with our districts short officers.”

The alderman has promised confidentiality for anyone who has any information on the vandals and can identify them.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.
