Man Sentenced in Brutal Attack

From CWB, a blog covering crime in Chicago better than any other news outlet:


Police said Taylor, Towbridge, and Ruff decided to burglarize 77-year-old Joanne Signa’s home in the 3600 block of North Magnolia at random. It was just one of several burglaries the crew is suspected of committing in Wrigleyville and nearby Lakeview during the winter of 2015-2016.

After kicking in her rear door, the three confronted Signa in her bedroom and beat her until she lost consciousness, police said. Then they allegedly loaded her car with stolen goods and drove away.


Towbridge was on parole at the time for a weapons violation.
