Bank branch robbed: The TCF Bank branch inside the Jewel-Osco store on Larkin Avenue was robbed Tuesday afternoon, Elgin police said. Police Cmdr. Glenn Theriault said the FBI has sent agents to investigate, but further details were not immediately available from FBI spokesmen. Several other TCF branches inside Jewel-Oscos also have been robbed in recent weeks and months — in Stickney on Monday, in Oak Lawn on Thursday, in Chicago on May 27, in Woodridge on April 5 and in Schaumburg on Feb. 19.
Stabbed outside bar: Police were looking for a man who stabbed a 38-year-old man outside Mudd & Eddie’s tavern at 302 S. McLean Blvd. at about 1:20 a.m. Saturday. The victim said the man, whom he had just met in the tavern, had been amicably playing darts with him inside the tavern but became angry with him when he began talking to some women whom the other man referred to as “my girls.” When the victim left the tavern, he told police, the other man ran up to him, made a stabbing motion, pushed him to the ground and ran away. The victim then noticed he had a severe cut on his arm, which a doctor at Provena Saint Joseph Hospital Elgin told police might involve artery and muscle damage.
Sneak burglar: A burglar entered an apartment in the 100 block of Byron Lane through a patio door that had been left open to let in cool air and stole two wallets while the couple who lived in the apartment were asleep, the owners told police. They said the burglary apparently happened between 11:30 p.m. Sunday and 7:20 a.m. Monday, and one of the wallets had been on a lamp table in the same room where they were sleeping. They said they became aware of the burglary when a stranger phoned them Monday morning to tell them she had found one of the wallets, discarded, on the ground. The wallets contained no money.
More than he smelled: A man who was searched because he allegedly smelled like burnt marijuana ended up being charged with possession of cocaine. Police said Sacramento Arreola Hernandez, 18, of the 500 block of McClure Avenue, was loitering outside the JJ Peppers store at 10 S. State St. at about 10 p.m. Monday when a patrolling officer noticed the smell. The officer said he found a plastic bag full of cocaine in Arreola Hernandez’s wallet.
