AGAIN: Another Woman Robbed In Lakeview During Morning Commute

Another woman has reported being struck and robbed in nearby Lakeview.  The incident has some parallels with two robberies that we told you about yesterday as well as attacks earlier this week in Lincoln Park.

In this morning's attack, a woman who is visiting Chicago was reportedly robbed of her purse and cell phone near Southport and School around 7 o'clock.

One offender is described as male, black, wearing a camouflage hooded jacket. He was with a black female who wore a denim jacket, cap, and camouflage pajama pants.

The victim reported that her attackers fled the area eastbound on foot.

A witness who called police separately said that the offenders escaped in a white Pontiac. The witness stated that the robbers were both men.

This is recorded as a strong arm robbery in CPD case #HW577697.

  1. Wow, this incident is just like the way the CPD portrays all of these crimes....a drunk person stumbling through an alley at 3AM. Oh wait, nevermind...

    Looking forward to the day when I read on this blog that a victim was legally exercising his conceal and carry right and rid the world of these criminal parasites.

    1. Can you stop with the conceal and carry rants? Why is crime so high in Memphis, Atlanta and all other cities in the south if this is magic?

    2. You should see how many CC rants we don't put through. Amazing.

    4. Not too much crime in Atlanta and Memphis in the nice neighborhoods. They have police. That is what is needed in Chicago. As far as CC I never understood why it's a big deal. Criminals will always have guns as will crazy people with a permit to carry. How about no permit needed if you wear your gun out in the open? And what about that crazy guy in Rogers Park that stabbed that girl and now she is blind? Just crazy. Did he have a permit for that knife. My point is I could care less about cc but crazy people will do crazy things. Criminals will always be criminals. How many times to read robber goes to prison and robber gets out and robs again?

    6. CWB openly states on this website that comments must be approved before posting. A website calling out the neighborhood's problems must be careful and not let blatant lies be posted for others to believe.

  3. You know, if they're going to put in all those red light and now speeding cameras, how about putting in some at intersectiosn that can actually help track these theievs that use cars? I know that a certain % of these are stolen vehicles as well, but at least the alert will be out on those as well. Unreal, this is too close to home (literally).

  6. Any reason why the 19th district couldn't send out some undercover folks ("drunk," "going to gym", "female with large purse") during these early morning hours to nab these low-life bums? Maybe I'm overly optimistic or naive in thinking it's that easy...

    1. One huge reason: THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH COPS.

    2. Yes you are overly optimistic and naive in thinking it's that easy. What is it about a drastic shortage of police that you do not understand?

    3. You have a blue light camera at Broadway/Belmont to take the place of cops. I'm still perplexed what it's there for. Maybe another multi-million $ jewelry or art heist is anticipated at Walgreens.

      Delete
    4. The Broadway/Belmont camera was placed there to protect the BYC boy scouts from criminals.

    5. Well, it is documented that about 80% of all cameras in the city are not functional. The crews at OEMC ( Office of Emergency Management & Communications) have been placed in the budget cut back by the mayor. There is no staffing to repair them. On top of it all there is no one to review the tapes . . . Go figure.

  7. Tonight on ABC news Rahm announced that $16,000,000 will be spent to build a "Health & Recreation" Center on the south side. Just one example of how taxpayer dollars are being wasted on vote-getting nonsense while there are not enough police.
