Village of Park Forest - Police News

Community Alert

Police in Park Forest are investigating several home invasions that have occurred in recent weeks. The crimes could potentially be linked, police say.

Park Forest Police Chief Pete Green today alerted residents of two more recent incidents via a pre-recorded message. In the message, Green said the following:


Hello, this is Chief Green from the Park Forest Police Department. This is a community alert for the residents of Park Forest. I want to reiterate information that was contained in an October 28th community alert as we have had two more similar incidents in the area of Onarga Street.

In each of these two most recent incidents female residents were overpowered by a male suspect who forced entry into the homes. The male adult suspect binds the victims and steals items from the homes prior to leaving.

The incidents seem to be happening during the early evening hours.

We have reason to believe that these Park Forest incidents are connected to other incidents that have been reported in other south suburban communities.

As our description of the suspect is vague, we are asking all Park Forest residents to be vigilant and be aware of your surroundings when arriving or leaving your homes.

Please report any suspicious vehicles or people in the area of your homes that appear to be loitering in the area. It’s important for you to call the Police Department’s 911 system and report any suspicious people or vehicles you see in your area. If you have information that you think is important into the investigation of these incidents, please contact our Detective Division at 748-1309. We are increasing our patrols in these areas and the detectives are using all resources available to them to bring a conclusion to this situation.

Thank you for your cooperation and your assistance. We will always need your assistance, there are more citizens then police and your calls and information are important to us.
