Several witnesses reported that two men knocked a woman down and stole her purse at Sheffield and Waveland, next to Wrigley Field last night. The first caller at 7:05PM said the attackers fled northbound on Sheffield in a blue, four-door Volkswagen with Minnesota license plates.

Officers arrived very quickly, but they could not pursue the matter because the woman declined police services.
