Police are investigating an increase in Logan Square burglaries, and have received reports about four break-ins since mid-December.
In each case the burglar or burglars go in through a rear door or rear window, Area North detectives said in a community alert.
The robberies happened in the following locations:
- the 2200 block of North Sawyer between 3 p.m. and 12:45 a.m. Dec. 16;
- the 3300 block of West Belden between 3:30 p.m. and 7:40 p.m. Dec. 22;
- the 2000 block of North Spaulding at 2 p.m. Jan. 5; and

In one case, the suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 5-foot-8 and 160 pounds, the alert said.
Neighbors should make sure all their doors and windows are locked, and watch for suspicious people loitering in the area, the alert said.
Anyone with information should call detectives at (312) 744-8263.
