BLOODY BELMONT: Strong Arm Robbery Caps The Night
The strong arm robbery capped an hour of craziness on that notoriously dangerous-after-dark stretch of Belmont Avenue.
3:19AM: Two white men were reportedly harassing customers outside of Berlin nightclub, 954 W. Belmont. One of the men was wearing a blue shirt, the other wore a white shirt with blood all over it.
3:36AM: A sergeant ordered additional cars and a squadrol to Belmont and Sheffield.
3:48AM: The squadrol was assigned to keep a presence in the 900 block of Belmont Avenue.
3:55AM: The robbery report came in. Two black male cross-dressers beat a man near the Dunkin' Donuts at Clark and Belmont. They took his phone and wallet, then fled in an unknown direction. A fire department ambulance was called to the scene to treat the victim. Chicago Police Department case #HW396801.
Then, after nearly 90 minutes of peace, came another call.
6:22AM: Ten teens "creating havoc" at the Belmont Red Line station. They're opening the emergency door and letting people in.
