CWB has learned that at least two people were robbed on Halsted Street as the summer-like antics peaked between 1AM and 2AM.
One victim was robbed in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at Roscoe and Halsted around 1 o'clock. That incident appears to have been reported to police by at least five 911 callers who saw a large group "fighting" in the lot. As is often the case, incidents that look like fights to passers-by are often robberies in progress. Case HX254580
The second victim was strong-arm robbed near the CTA bus turn-around at Belmont and Halsted around 1:30AM. Case HX254297
