Glass Falls To Sidewalk On Ontario Street In Streeterville

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Glass crashed down several stories from a high-rise onto the sidewalk late Saturday in the Streeterville neighborhood.

It started sometime around 11 p.m., and police blocked off part of the block. They say at least two cars were damaged. 

It appeared that some of the glass fell from a now-empty condo window at Ontario Street and Fairbanks Court.

One woman said she was standing at the side of the building at 600 N. Fairbanks Ct. when the glass struck her, too, not just once but multiple times. 

I was standing at the side of the hotel and glass started coming down like hail," said Denise Willis. "It hit my arm and it's swollen; hit my neck, coming down like six times since I've been standing here."

Willis continued: "I started running. I think it's someone busting windows. I don't know because the glass is really thick, and it hurts really bad. As you can see my arm and hand is really swollen."

She said she filed a police report, but when asked, Chicago police said they had no reported injuries.

One person who lives in the building said he found glass on his balcony, and a CBS 2 photojournalist spotted a resident sweeping a balcony.

CBS 2 also asked from what floor the glass fell and why. Police said they are still investigating. We also reached out to building management, and they said they would not be able to respond until Monday.
