MEAN GIRLS: Lady Bandits Strike Again; "Lots" Of Purses, Wallets Seen In Get-Away Car

Two women who robbed a couple of ladies on Melrose Avenue in Boystown on Monday appear to have struck again in Lincoln Park.

Around 3:30 Saturday morning, a silver car with two female occupants pulled up to a man at Clark and Wrightwood. Both women were black, in their 20's, about 5'7" tall. One of the women, who weighs a whopping 200 pounds, got out of the car and stole the man's wallet.

The thieves then drove southbound on Clark Street. The man's description of the offenders closely matches that given by the two Boystown robbery victims.

Interestingly, the victim in this incident reported seeing lots of purses and wallets in the get-away car.

Recorded as a theft in CPD case HW586343.

  1. As a man, I must say that a woman, even if she weighed 400 pounds, would have to kill me before she could rob me for my wallet.

    2. I agree, I'd most likely laugh in her face

  2. And the point of saying the woman is a 'whopping' 200 pounds? Was it really necessary to editorialize there?

    1. I think CWB demonstrated refined restraint by only calling the fat pig a "whopping" 200 pounds.

    2. What do you call a woman who is 5'7" and 200 pounds...slim and trim?

    3. I agree with the original commenter. The attempt at satire just takes away from the credibility of this blog.

    5. 5'7 and 200 lbs... That is hefty at least, whopping fits.

    6. I read that more as pointing out and descriptive feature. To me, details like that are important so I know what to look out for. Even better, the comments brought more attention and now I definitely won't forget.

  3. Yeah, honestly, unless she had a gun in my face, this just ain't happening.

    1. I agree. No way this is happening. Might as well be castrated.

  4. No wonder Forbes lists us as the "Fourth Most Miserable City" for 2013. Detroit and Flint, Mi are the top two. Looks like we are well on our way to becoming Numero Uno!

    2. Forbes uses those "lists" to embarrass the President, they have no grounding in reality. They have NYC as #10 on that list, does that make any sense?

    3. Can you prove that?

    4. Yeah, that's it...it's done to embarrass Obama. Not the fact that we have some of the highest gas prices, taxes, corrupt, scandal-filled politicians, crime through the roof, crappy sports teams (except for the Blackhawks!!!), crappy winters, crappy traffic, ridiculous parking fees and fines, and horrible schools....but Forbes wants to stick it to Barry. I think not.

    5. So... Um this Forbes list... It is brand new since Obama took over? Detroit and Chicago were not on them when Bush and Clinton were in office?

  5. Stupid-ass Rahm made a disparaging remark about the French when their government issued a travel warning to stay out of the South and West sides. Now I'll suppose he'll throw a hissy-fit about Forbes.

  6. "Does this make me look fat?"
    "Yes...that and the extra 75 pounds you are hauling around."

  7. Pretty cool that the victim had the chance to get the perp to step on a scale prior to being mugged! And how cool would it be to have a scale that assigns adjectives to the weight? Whopping! Fat Ass! Orca! or even Shit! You broke me!!!

    In all honesty, a weight description is fine. But, when is the last time that you saw "whopping" describing a male suspect? No matter how fat he was?

    2. Thanks for the parity!

      Out of curiosity, and not being facetious here, are these descriptions that come from you guys ('cause I do love the sarcasm and honesty) or are these descriptions coming from elsewhere?

      I'm a fat chick and you can call me whopping! though, I'm not stealing wallets. So, to see the link to a thunderous man was awesome, too.

    3. Thank you, Anonymous, for reading CWB.

      The raw facts of suspect descriptions are reported as given by the Chicago Police Department. If a member of the department offers particularly precise or colorful wording, we would publish that portion in quotation marks.

    4. Thanks for the clarification!

      I have to say, these are much more "clean" descriptions than I would probably give in the heat of the moment of being victimized. :)

      Signed,
      A whopping fat chick

  8. It shows how fucked up the priorities of some people are that they are more concerned with derogatory comments about the criminal's weight than they are about the criminal's horrendous actions.

    1. Please see my above reply. And, I am appalled by the behavior. I can also be appalled by a double standard, too.

      I am curious as to why, though, you picked the weight comment and not the comments in regards to this gentleman's lack of manhood by being robbed by an unarmed woman to attack for lack of concern regarding the crime. For example... "Might as well be castrated."

    2. How about everyone here grows a little thicker skin and realizes we are all on the same team.

  9. How did I end up living in the most passive city in the world? We are responsible for ourselves and our own safety. The end. No Daddy cop is going too be there to make the bad criminals go away. Arm yourself,carry a bat, or walk in packs with bow and arrow....do SOMETHING besides expect someone to come to your rescue....

    2. Just an adult that takes full responsibility for my own safety...no victim mentality here. Novel I know...but as a woman, I have looked over my shoulder my whole life; this crime spree isn't anything new to me

    3. Do you maintain your own courts and jails too?

  10. Sidenote;...Walgreens on Broadway off Waveland has a huge security screen as soon as you walk in...I think we are a summer away from having to walking through scanners...this hood is like a prison except the criminals are on the other side...
