While a huge chunk of our 19th district police resources were babysitting “Safe Passage” routes after school today, a person was strong arm robbed directly behind Horace Greeley Elementary School at Sheridan and Broadway.
Greely is not included in the city’s “Safe Passage” program and police response to the robbery was limited due to officers’ “Safe Passage” commitments.
The victim, who was attacked at 4:13PM, described the offender as male, black, in his late 30s or early 40s, very short—about 5’2”—skinny, with braids in his hair, wearing a black jacket and dark blue jeans. He was last seen running westbound through the alley behind Greely, toward Fremont Street.
The robbery is documented in Chicago Police Department case #HW504510.
