Lopez said his office has surveillance video of the incident and he is working with detectives to identify the individuals involved. He believes the vandalism was gang related.

Someone threw a brick through the front window of Ald. Ray Lopez’s (15th) Southwest Side office Thursday night, the fourth instance of vandalism targeting his properties this year.

About 10:50 p.m. a male threw a brick through the front window of an office in the 2700 block of West 47th Street, and three males were seen running from the scene, according to Chicago police.

Lopez posted a surveillance video to Twitter early Friday showing three people throwing bricks at the office, 2736 W. 47th St., and asked the public to help identify the suspects.

His office was previously vandalized twice in July, with bricks thrown through the front windows. That month, someone also threw a brick into Lopez’s Brighton Park home and set fire to a neighbor’s garage.

Lopez said he is working with detectives to identify the individuals involved. He believes the vandalism was gang related.

After Thursday’s attack, Lopez cast blame toward Mayor Lori Lightfoot and CPD Supt. David Brown, tweeting, “At what point will she & Brown realize their policies are fueling brazen acts like this?”

No one is in custody as Area One detectives investigate.

By all means keep sending our officers downtown Mayor! At what point will she & Brown realize their policies are fueling brazen acts like this? I will push on but my residents are sick of living in fear b/c criminals know they have the upper hand with our districts short officers https://t.co/DUSQjjxbWV
