A BUSHEL OF APPLES: Gunman Takes Victim's iPhone, iPad, Cash

Continuing a recent trend of robbers striking before midnight, a Lakeview woman was robbed at gunpoint just west of Illinois Masonic Medical Center at 10:50 last night. There has been no arrest.

The victim reported that the masked gunman approached her at Wellington and Kenmore, pulled out a black steel semi-automatic handgun, and took her iPhone and backpack. The backpack contained an iPad, cash, and the woman's ID.

Police believe the suspect fled to the area of the Wellington Brown Line station.

Last night's suspect is described as male, black, 5'6" to 5'10 tall, wearing all black clothing and a black ski mask that only allowed the victim to see his eyes.

CPD case #HW548204.


  1. worst f-ing nightmare.

  2. Seems like many of these crimes are committed near L stops. Since the police & mayor claim that crime is down (but we know better), perhaps this community could start educating folks on how to not be victims of crime. I can't tell you how often (almost daily) I see young women walking around at night with ear buds in their ears, busily texting/playing with their phones.
