West Loop neighbors, police join forces to address crime

CHICAGO (CBS) — People who live in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood are joining forces to try to stop crime. 

Neighbors met Saturday morning at Bartelme Park on South Sangamon and police and aldermen discussed a recent uptick in crime, including attempted abductions in the area. 

One activist is telling people not to give up hope, that the first key to a solution is acknowledging there is a problem. 

Police have arrested a man believed to be connected to a string of attacks and kidnapping attempts against women. 

And it is not all talk. The Chicago West Loop Community Organization is hoping to empower residents by hosting free self defense classes by POW gym. Basic skills and techniques will be taught. 

The classes will be offered Mondays starting at 5 p.m. and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. until October 15.
