Ward 15 Alderman reports another incident of vandalism

[VIDEO] This incident happened on Sunday Alderman Raymond Lopez's (Ward 15) offices were hit with bricks by vandals:

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15th) reported a second incident of vandalism in two weeks. Someone smashed the windows of his office in Brighton Park late Sunday night.

Police said two people were seen throwing bricks through the front windows and door of the alderman’s office just before midnight.

Lopez tweeted photos of the damage, while calling out Mayor Lori Lightfoot for refusing to address what he calls “terror attacks on our communities.” Lopez said he believes gang members are targeting him.
Since the unrest of the last weekend in May - the unrest in the wake of George Floyd's death - Ald. Lopez has been on top of the city's response to the uptick of crime and certainly the looting and vandalism of that period. And in the above link in blockquotes his home was attacked with bricks.
