Clarendon Hills Woman a Victim of Fraud

The fraud took place on Feb. 2 according to the Clarendon Hills Police Department.

Fraud—A woman from the 20 block of Chestnut Avenue reported to the  at 7:50 p.m. Feb. 2 that five fraudulent charges were made with her bank information by an unknown suspect.

Four of the charges were under $10 and one was for approximately $20. 

Indecent exposure—A Ugandan man whose last known address is in Olympia Fields got the attention of Clarendon Hills Police after he refused to leave a cab outside Clarendon Hills Community Presbyterian Church at 11:03 p.m. Feb. 4 and then exposed himself once inside.

Manasseh Nuwagaba, 31, had been taken to the church, a Public Action To Deliver Shelter (PADS) site, from Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. Officers coaxed him out of the cab, where he was in the backseat praying, and into PADS. The PADS staff eventually kicked Nuwagaba out for exposing himself.

Nuwagaba was not violent and no charges were filed against him. Clarendon Hills Police let him stay overnight at the downtown Metra station, where it was warm, and he was gone by the morning of Feb. 5.
