EARLY TO BED: Overnight Hours Filled With Robbery Reports

So, which hours are the most robbery-laden on the streets of Wrigleyville and Boystown? 

Overnight, of course. Nearly half of this year's robberies occurred between 1:30AM and 4:30AM

The good news is that the 10AM hour is absolutely safe. So, like prisoners, we get one hour of outdoor activity per day. (Humor.)

Here's a breakdown of the number of robberies per hour so far this year on beats 1923, 1924, and 1925.
