In the early morning hours on Friday, April 23rd Natasha McShane and Stacy Jurich were brutally attacked while walking in the Bucktown Neighborhood. This is a horrible incident that has deeply shaken our community and we are doing everything we can to help the victims and bring the offender of this horrific crime to justice.

We are working closely with the Chicago Police Department and urge anyone with information that could be helpful to the investigation to contact the Chicago Police Department. The Police Department has increased the number of patrols in the area. We strongly encourage you to inform your family and friends of this incident and advise them to take steps to protect themselves if they are staying out late.

Please join Alderman Scott Waguespack, Commander Flores, and the Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce at a community meeting concerning this situation. We would like to discuss how residents and businesses can actively participate in protecting ourselves and our neighborhood.
