From Nextdoor Northgate/Maple Leaf:

Hit and runs (on multiple sideswiped cars) last night in the south end of Maple Leaf.

We had a hit and run driver sideswipe some cars on Fourth Avenue Northeast last night around 11:30 p.m. We got the truck’s license and called the cops, but they have not responded yet (say they’ve been very busy with many issues last night and this morning). At least three different neighbors have called them….

He left a two-block long scrape in Fourth Avenue where his axle gouged the road as he tried to flee the scene.

Earlier in the week, also from Nextdoor:

Burglary Tuesday morning in Maple Leaf.

Neighbors on Northeast 92nd Street between 5th and 8th avenues northeast were burglarized yesterday morning with numerous items stolen. The house was also ransacked. The perpetrators may have been in an older tan or cream colored van.

The map shows locations of burglaries here reported to police so far in November.
