Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 5:52 AM Sunday to a report of a victim beaten at 1100 North Knollwood Drive Schaumburg, IL. The Schaumburg Police Department (SPD) is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying two suspects in the beating of a 30-year old female resident of Schaumburg. At approximately 1:45 a.m. on Friday, August 9, 2013 the victim was taking garbage to a dumpster in an apartment complex parking lot on the 1100 block of North Knollwood Drive. The victim was confronted by two offenders who beat her. The victim fell unconscious and upon awaking the offenders had fled. The victim sustained some torn clothing, but it is unknown if the intent was a sexual assault. The victim was treated at a local hospital for cuts and bruises.
Suspect #1 was described as a male, mixed race or Hispanic, 25-28 y,ears-old, 6’00”- 6’02”, medium build, wearing blue plaid shorts and a white sleeveless T-Shirt.
Suspect #2 was described as a male, mixed race or Hispanic, 25-28 years-old, 6’03” – 6’06”, medium to heavy build, curly hair, tattoo on right side of his neck.
Suspect #2 was with a white Pitbull dog The dog had a dark spot on one eye, clipped ears and a clipped tail and was possibly named “Dueces”.
The tattoo described is known to be connected to a horrorcore subgenre of hip hop music with horror-themed lyrical content an imagery (e.g., fans of Insane Clown Posse/ICP). The hatchet man logo is is used by violent Juggalo gang members as well as non-violent fans of the hip hop music. In September 2012, Insane Clown Posse launched a lawsuit against the FBI claiming the FBI violated the rights of Juggalos on the mistaken belief that they are “gang members”. Criminal and gang-related activity has been attributed in several states to self-described ‘Juggalos’ in recent years (at least since 2007), including assaults, drug trafficking, vandalism, burglary, shootings, theft,robbery, and numerous murders.
In a Schaumburg Community Alert that police released on Saturday August 10, 2013 at 11:25 a.m., police did not reveal whether the woman awoke and called 9-1-1, or whether a passer by discovered the woman and called police.
Two strong armed robberies were reported near this location in May 2013. Two separate incidents May 18, 2013 and May 20, 2013 involved necklaces being ripped away from female victims. Neither of the females were injured in the May 2013 incidents.
Police urge any citizen with information about this case to contact the Schaumburg Police Department Investigation Division at 847.882.3534 or

Cardinal Note: As of June 5, 2013 — up to and including the date of this article — police incidents related to the above police agency are not reported in real time or within a prompt time period. Police protecting their realm of investigation and police activity, have chosen to use encrypted radios to withhold their police communications, which were previously open to the public and news media via monitoring of public safety scanning radios — with no known negative results locally.
The delayed knowledge or entirely blacked out knowledge resulting from encrypted police communications may protect certain police operations and investigations, but it also puts the public at risk in situations such as when armed and dangerous offenders are at large and when other similar situations occur. In other cases, the delayed or blacked out information inhibits or prohibits the possibility of the public providing early witness accounts before a criminal trail goes cold. Citizens are much more likely to recognize or recall suspicious or criminal activity if they are aware of the criminal incident within minutes or hours of its occurrence. The most serious incident involving dire results would be a trail that is allowed to go cold in the case of child abduction.
The lack of real time information from public police dispatch also weakens an effective neighborhood watch program mostly working to prevent property loss, but also working to prevent possible violent crimes.
Police have alternate ways to transmit tactical, operational or investigative information, while still keeping their main public dispatch channels open for the best balance of public safety and police safety.
