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.
