Bricks thrown through window of Ald. Ray Lopez’s Brighton Park office
Two people threw bricks through the window of Ald. Ray Lopez’s (15th) office Sunday in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.
They were seen throwing the bricks at 11:43 p.m. at the office, 2736 W. 47th St., according to Chicago police.
The suspects ran, and no one was in custody, police said.
Lopez called out Mayor Lori Lightfoot in a tweet about the incident early Monday.
“When you, mayor, refuse to call out the terror attacks on our communities, especially on their electeds, criminals only feel more emboldened to continue their reign,” Lopez wrote. “Glass can be replaced, peace of mind and security cannot. Your silence is destroying this city!”
Lightfoot on Monday said attacks on any elected official can’t be tolerated and promised to provide the resources needed to protect Lopez’s home and ward office.
The incident comes more than a week after someone threw a brick into Lopez’s Brighton Park home and set fire to a neighbor’s garage on July 9.
Lopez told the SunTimes he blamed gang members for that incident.
The windows of Ald. Ray Lopez’s 15th Ward office, 2736 W. 47th St., were boarded up on Monday after two people threw bricks at the office.
