MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: Neighborhood Officially Sets 3rd Consecutive Robbery Record

We did it!  Newly-released city records have made it official. 2013 has broken 2012's record for the most robberies in our neighborhood. In turn, 2012 broke the record set by 2011.

At 7:20PM last Tuesday, December 10, Wrigleyville and Boystown recorded their 234th robbery of the year when a victim was targeted in a strong arm robbery attempt near the corner of Cornelia and Elaine Place, one block east of Halsted. CPD case #HW566195.

That's three record-breaking years in a row.

What are your elected officials and police executives doing to ensure that 2014 won't be the fourth consecutive record-breaking year?

  2. Surely you're mistaken with your numbers, they contradict with what Tiny Rahm has been proclaiming to the press and that they have been proudly relaying to their audience. I demand a recount lol.

    Sadly I think the community is on a slippery slope to being awfully close to a lot more serious crimes like murder taking place.

  3. How awful that COH patrons have to experience this level of crime. Where are Rahm, Tito, and Tunney when you need them? Don't they have any clout to get some police cracking down on these hoodlums?

  4. I feel bad for any seniors that eventually move into the new senior center neighboring the COH. They'll be robbed and beaten on a daily basis as easy prey for the thugs.

    Nothing. They are doing nothing. If anything, judges are making it worse; breaking the law and sending violent felons to 'boot camp' instead of prison against regulations.

  6. Until all of our collective anger & frustration leaves this Comment section and gets directed at the Alderman, Mayor and Police Chief, little will happen. It should be a requirement that every comment is accompanied by a letter or call to these people.
