BEATEN, ROBBED: Victim Wanders Wrigleyville Looking For Help

A citizen called 911 from the souvenir stand at Clark and Waveland to report finding a man who had been severely beaten.

Around 3:45AM, police determined that the man's injuries were suffered in a strong arm robbery. Two offenders, descrsibed only as male and black, stole the victim's cell phone, wallet, and house keys in the attack. An ambulance crew treated the victim for his injuries.

About 30 minutes before the souvenir stand call, 911 was contacted by employees who said a beating victim had run inside the 7-Eleven store across from Wrigley Field at Sheffield and Addison.

A beating victim was also reportedly found at the McDonald's restaurant across from Wrigley Field.

Police suspect that all of the reports were of the same victim as he sought help after the robbery.

The CPD classified this as a robbery with a handgun.
