Another Brick in the Wall
Someone bashed in the windshield of a 2009 Ford Escape sometime before 7:30 a.m. Oct. 22 on the 9800 block of South Ridgeland. The owner told police she heard two loud bangs the night before and thought someone was kicking in her condo's garage door. When she looked out the window, she did not see anyone. The next morning, she discovered her windshield had been smashed with two bricks that someone had taken from a retaining wall. She told police she didn't have problems with anyone except for six months ago, when someone wrote swear words on her car with chalk.

Meet the Parents
Steven J. Lisaki, 18, of the 4900 block of West Harnew Avenue, was charged with assault after pointing a BB gun at his girlfriend's parents, according to a police report. The girlfriend's mother told police that at 1:20 a.m. Oct. 19, she received two text messages from her 18-year-old daughter, who asked her parents to pick her up at Lisaki's house because she no longer wished to be with him. A few moments later, the girl called her mother back and asked to be picked up. During the phone conversation, the mother told police, the mother could hear Lisaki screaming in the background that he would "shoot your mom and dad." The parents drove to Lisaki's house, and when their daughter came out, the mom could see Lisaki peeking from around the corner and pointing an object at them. As the parents and daughter drove away, the daughter told her parents Lisaki was holding a BB gun in his hand. The mother reported the incident to police on Oct. 21, stating that she wished to file a complaint against Lisaki. Police went to Lisaki's house and spoke to his father, turned the BB gun over to police. When Lisaki arrived home, he denied pointing the gun at his girlfriend's mother before he was taken into custody, police said. Lisaki has a Dec. 7 court date.
