BAD PEEPS: Two More Robbed In Boystown Overnight

Boystown's ugly side came out again overnight, leaving two fun-seekers to spend the Easter weekend recovering from strong-arm robberies.

Both robberies, which may have been pulled off by the same attackers, occurred as the "early" bars closed around 2 o'clock.

Robbery #1: Halsted And Roscoe

The first victim was robbed on the southeast corner of Halsted and Roscoe, outside of Progress Bar, around 2AM. The victim, who filed their police report over the phone, was robbed of their cell phone by two offenders who fled across Halsted and westbound on Roscoe. The police case number is HX229046.

Offender descriptions:
1 — Male, black, 16 to 22 years old, wearing a white hoodie.
2 — Male, black, 5'9" tall, wearing a light denim jacket and white sneakers.

Robbery #2: 845 W. Cornelia

Moments later, at 2:05AM, a Lake View man was mugged on a notoriously dark stretch of Cornelia near Reta, about a half-block west of the Halsted strip. The victim was roughed up and robbed of his iPhone and wallet by two offenders:
1 — Male, black, early 20's, 5'9" tall, wearing a hoodie with a baseball hat underneath, and possibly sporting a mustache.
2 — Male, black.
Recorded as a strong arm robbery in CPD case HX229059.

  1. We need cops not bike lanes. The thugs know it's fair game in boystown. Emanuel and Tunney must go.

  2. And we don't need to spend a 100 million landing the Obama library. That 100 million would hire a lot of Police for Chicago. But once again Rahm doesn't care about the average person.

    1. The city's tax payers would not pay out 100 million -it would be paid by wealthy donors.

    2. You must have missed this, then.

    3. The $100 million is from the state's taxpayers.

    4. It's from State Tax Payers. Chicago sends a lot of money from the taxes we pay here to the rest of the state. That's why I say give us a 100 million for hiring new officers.

  3. Are we really gonna sit around and let this happen again this summer? This is insanity!! Alderman Tunney and Mayor Emmanuel have got to start feeling our fire. I am PIIIIIISSSSSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like a prisoner in my own home! How can these thugs be handed free reign over our neighborhood? That is essentially what has happened.

    1. Sadly the thugs are handed free reign over our neighborhood from…US. The people in the neighborhood are the ones voting overwhelmingly for clowns like prince Rahm and lady Tunney because they march in our parades and love their photo ops with us. Until the voters wake up, nothing will change.

  4. The residents need to get off the couch and get out to the streets and fight for your community! March on Rahm's street and become a nuisance by chanting something like- No cops, hell no we won't go- and this will attract the news media. Organize!!

  5. Why not organize and walk the streets - get a few guys with conceal/carry permits to join.

      i'm with you, pal. we should meet up at the next CAPS gathering. thats all they have to see, a few guys walking around that may or may not be packing. At the end of the day, these foul balls are cowards and will soil themselves if they even think they are the ones being focused on. that Halsted bus headed south will be packed.

  6. The best place to protest is in front of the Ann Sather restaurants. The sound of money is the only thing that catches Tunney's attention so lost revenues would get his attention.

    Prince Tunney has been looking pretty ragged when you see his picture online. It's gotta be tough for the poor thing being an incompetent puppet alderman.

    1. I will NEVER spend one cent at Ann Sathers. I also encourage my friends to avoid that place as well.

  7. Lets demand the return of 19 & 23rd districts, it wasn't this bad before the Merge. Rahm,McCarthy & Tunnney lied!!

    1. Let's demand? Come on do you think we really matter to Rahm & Company. He doesn't care about us. That is where the problem starts thinking we the average tax paying citizens can demand anything. Rahm & Company will just come up with some BS and spin anything. What part can't people figure out a) we need more police citywide b) Rahm is the one that won't hire more police. The only way to stop Rahm is vote his ass out. Even if the guy he picks to run against him is a worse. In 4 years you can vote that guy out too. Wake up this is all Rahm's fault. He is the real Chief of Police.

  8. I can just about guarantee, if the constitutionally protected right to peacefully assemble actually happens, and it's in front of Ann Barf Sather, or Rahm's armored estate, you and I will be arrested. Doesn't matter what the law says... this is Chicago. Homeland Security would be called out, the National Guard, even TSA somehow would work its way in there ... we'd all be locked up. Want to try it though? I'm all FOR a community gathering like this -- several of them, if needed -- but I don't want to be the only one out there.

    1. You've got that right. Plenty of police would suddenly be available. The news would also mysteriously find their way to the scene to paint us all as nuts, and then Rahm, the clown from NJ and Prince Tunney would be in the cameras saying how safe the area is and that we cannot tolerate these evil protestors disrupting our quiet neighborhood. Sad but true.

    2. Please stop the hype. There have been protests in front of Rahm's house before. Police were there, no laws were broken, no arrests were made. The national guard was not called out nor the army nor TSA. Things like this hurt the discussion

  9. Transfer order is OUT. 11 people bid in to 019....and (drum roll, please) 9 people bid out. That's a net gain of plus 2. That doesn't count recent promotions. Great job there Eli. More people dying to get out. And you can't blame the airport. Only 1 person from 019 is going there.

  10. I moved from Chicago in 2013 and never looked back. I've commented a bit on this great site and here's my
    spin. Chicago, 1980's-1990's was gritty and the best place in the USA to live in. I walked from 60611 zip
    to the bar scene often and NEVER felt threatened. Tom Tunney ran Ann Sather's and he was a great guy and did a tremendous service in many ways. That's changed of course but I moved from Chicago when I sensed what and why it's dangerous. First, you have kid who have grown up in conditions that an animal would be taken away from. Those "kids" see on TV things they will never have and have nothing to lose in acquiring them violently. The pattern of moving seriously deprived families to the North side of Chicago is why Rodgers Park and Boystown has a problem that has no solution. The tipping point for me was celling 911 while witnessing a break in and no cops ever, ever came. That and a friend who got beaten so badly on a Sunday
    afternoon in July, on Chicago Ave. (bill $75.000 plus) who wouldn't hurt a fly got me to Austin Texas. Laugh all you want but you never know who has a gun so you think twice before you hold someone up here. Best to all but the Chicago I grew to love is gone.

    1. Brian, I agree with you completely.
      I want to get out of Chicago ASAP and Austin is on my list.
      What neighborhoods in Austin do you recommend?

  11. It should be a impeachable ofense for elected representives to say one thing to get elected and then do the exact opposite.

  12. I think the cops should bring out those dune buggies on Halsted St. again. That was so amusing and entertaining. Vroom, vroom, vroom!
