CLOBBERED: Woman Robbed On Wellington

Punched in the face and stripped of her purse, a woman became the latest robbery victim today.

According to the woman, the strong arm robbery took place at Wellington and Pine Grove at 2:45 this morning. Her attacker fled eastbound.

He is described as male, black, 6' to 6'2" tall, athletic build, wearing a black sweatshirt with a skull print and jeans.

The stolen purse is gray with a big flower on one side.

CPD case number is HW508859.

A man reported that someone snatched his phone at the Subway restaurant near Belmont and Clark around 2:15 this morning. The offender was last seen running northbound on Dayton Street, the alley-like street that runs between Halsted and Clark from Belmont.

It is not clear if police officers made contact with the victim.

A Lake View woman returned home this morning to find her front door kicked in. The resident, who lives on Addison near Racine, later called for a police supervisor because she was not pleased with the police service she received.

The matter was categorized as criminal damage to property in case #HW508846.


  1. Wouldn't it be awesome if someone would rig a modified iPhone with a small amount of C4 and then detonate it once the thief was running westbound on Belmont? I'd pay big money to the guy who pulls that off.

  2. you could pretty easily CAD and mold a fake iphone (or 3d print a few) and put all sorts of fun things inside. wasps, alarm shrills, ink charges.

  3. or if the cops actually did a few sting operations to stop this... that too would be nice

  4. Luckily my phone was in my pocket. Also, it was a skeleton print on his shirt, not a skull print.

    1. Thank you for clarifying, Anonymous. We sincerely hope that you are doing well.
