UPGRADE: Another Boystown Shoplifting Turns Into Robbery

UPDATE: The Walmart Express incident was subsequently downgraded from robbery to "retail theft."
---------
A shoplifting incident spun out of control at the Walmart Express, 3636 N. Broadway, and escalated into a strong arm robbery Sunday. One man was taken into custody.

The Walmart Express incident is the second case in seven days of a routine shoplifting matter turning into a much more serious robbery situation when offenders fought back against store security.

Officers went to the Walmart at 3:25PM Sunday after a 911 call taker said she could hear a loud commotion in the background as store employees called for help.

The incident is recorded in CPD case #HX120348.

45-year-old John Adkisson is facing robbery and aggravated battery charges for biting, kicking, and spitting on a Jewel-Osco seurity guard who tried to stop him for shoplifting vodka last weekend.  Adkisson screamed "I got AIDS" during his failed escape attempt, which contributed to the more severe charges.

  1. Just wait until that huge CHA apartment building is up and running on Halsted.

    1. Are you referring to the old Police Station building at Halsted and Addison? I thought that was intended to be low-income housing for LGBT seniors? I think we have more to fear from the 20- and 30-something visitors to our neighborhood than we do from the 60- and 70-year-old residents.

    2. I'm afraid that the LGBT Seniors will be the targets of the 20-somethings.

    3. Oh, those poor seniors will not be able to leave their residence. Someone needs to warn them wherever they'd come from to go somewhere else.

      So when will the "media" start doing its job and get in Rahm's face about the crime that is out of control. The streets of Boystown have obviously been taken over by the thugs and yet nothing is being done other than mask the problem. So sick of these useless politicians and media serving as their accomplices.

    4. It's not all seniors that will be residents there. You were lied to. It's section 8 for people with disabilities.

    5. the media get in Tiny Tutu's face? they need to grow some balls or have them sewn back on first. they're all too afraid that their careers could be torpedoed by this carpet-bagging bolshevik and perceived influence he gives the impression of having. truth is, he is just a puffed-up, arrogant, spoiled POS punk who didnt get his ass kicked enough when he was a kid.

    1. Oh shit. And I'm meeting a friend I haven't seen in a year that lives nearby there. I thought meeting during the day on her day off would be nonsense and violence free.
