Dispatcher: Hey, got a lady getting naked in the middle of the street, Moffat and Kedzie, Kedzie and Moffat.

1421: OK.

Dispatcher: 434?

1434: I'm clear. You want me to assist 21 or whatever?

Dispatcher: Yeah, you could join the rest of the district.

1434: Just to help 21--usually those naked ones are not much to look at.

Unidentified caller: But they're naked!

1443: 1443.

Dispatcher: Go ahead, 43.

1443: I'm over here at Kedzie and Moffat. I don't see anyone here, but I think the person who called is comin' up to me right now. I'll let you know what's goin' on.

Dispatcher: Ten-four. Everybody goin' out to check out the naked chick, no one's there right now. 43's talkin' to the complainant.

Unidentified caller number two: Which way did she go? Which way did she go?

Dispatcher: A male black took the naked lady into an abandoned building, 18-- Kedzie? Is that what you're sayin'?

1443: That's what the complainant just told me. 18-- Kedzie, there's a vacant building and she says that he took her in there.

Dispatcher: OK, all right, ten-four, this sounds like this might be somethin'. All right, you got 21 comin', you got 34 backin' you up over there also.
