Alsip man accused of Lake in the Hills hate crime released on bond

UpRising Bakery & Cafe owner thanks police, community

People walk into Uprising Bakery & Cafe in Lake in the Hills, Monday, July 26, 2022, after the store reopened Sunday after its front windows were smashed and epithets written on the walls, to long lines and enthusiastic community support. The cafe, which was planning to host an all-ages drag show Saturday night, had experienced backlash over the previous few weeks.
Joseph Collins, 24, of Alsip, was charged with two counts July 23, 2022 related to the vandalism at UpRising Bakery and Cafe in Lake in the Hills.
