Chicago Police Department Case #HW292304

Callers reported a man being robbed at the intersection of Cornelia Avenue and Elaine Place, one block east of Boystown's Halsted Strip. Four black men and one Hispanic man allegedly beat their victim and stole his wallet, which contained credit cards, but no money.

One suspect wore red pants, one wore khaki pants, and one wore shorts. The mugger who took the victim's wallet was a male, black, with a dark complexion, 5'5" tall, 150 pounds, wearing all beige.

Officers stopped a pair of suspects who matched the victim's description on Aldine Avenue, just east of Halsted Street. The victim was driven past the suspects, but he did not believe the pair was involved.

In a remarkably poor example of the Chicago Police Department promise to "serve and protect," officers who drove the victim to look at the possible suspects returned him to 3501 N. Halsted, outside of Little Jim's bar, where he was left alone to wait for a squad car to take his report. The squad was unable to find the victim upon arrival at the scene. They did attempt to reach him via his cell phone, which, contrary to police department publicity efforts, was not targeted or taken by his attackers.

Chicago Police Department Case # NO REPORT FILED

Two male, black, teens wearing black jeans, black shirts, and black jackets tried to rob a man of his backpack on Clark Street, just south of Addison. The victim and his friend fought back and regained control of the victim's property.

The punks then ran northbound and hopped on a northbound #22 Clark bus at Addison, then ran out of the bus and fled east on Addison toward Halsted.

The victim opted to not file a report.

Chicago Police Department Case # NO REPORT FILED

An employee of the CVS Pharmacy at Clark Street and Barry Avenue called 911 to report a man outside had been robbed. No further details were relayed. It is not clear if police made contact with the reported victim. A squad car assigned to the Lincoln Square neighborhood was dispatched to leave its North Side area to handle the call because all Wrigleyville and Boystown officers were busy.

UPDATE 3 June 2013: Added case number for the Cornelia/Elaine robbery.  Confirmed that the attempted robbery at Clark/Addison was not officially filed with CPD. No report was filed on the CVS call.
