NEARBY: 13-Year-Old Robbed; 2 Suspicious Fires North

A masked gunman robbed a woman near a Chase bank ATM in nearby Lake View around 10:15 Tuesday night.

The gunman pulled a black semi-automatic handgun in the 2900 block of Lincoln, took the woman's purse, then fled southbound in a white panel van that was driven by another man. The van's license plate may have digits similar to "5113."

Some of the victim's stolen property was recovered around 10 o'clock this morning near the old Children's Hospital site at Lincoln and Fullerton.

Suspect descriptions: The gunman is black, 6-feet tall, with a stocky build. The driver is male, possibly white.

Recorded as an armed robbery with a handgun in CPD case HX413191.

  1. Someone's dad care to explain what a 13 year old was doing out on the street at 1245AM when curfew is at 1000pm?

    1. "Outside his home" means on his property. Not your business what someone nor his child does on his property at anytime of day.

    2. Perhaps the kid was taking out the trash, getting something for his parents. Regardless, being outside doesn't mean they were up to anything bad.

    3. I agree with the first comment, what was a 13 year old doing out at 12:45 on a school night??????

    4. Outside his home could also mean not on their property... I am curious why a 13 year old was outside at 12:45 on a school night....

  2. Did anyone see the today's Tribune article about the woman who tried to kidnap a 2-year-old boy at O'Hare? She lives on the 3400 block of N. Halsted. Was hoping CWB could get her address, since they seem to be good at that.

    1. Her LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/otetoh

    2. Thank you for posting a link to her Linkedin profile. That 25-cent word salad of nonsense completely made my day.

    3. I can't wait until she updates her linkedin profile to "incarcerated."

    4. He or she has had 9 bullshit jobs in 8 years, all with indecipherable job descriptions.

    5. I don't think I've ever seen a LinkedIn profile with as much horseshit in it as hers contains. Oh ... my ... God. I have a fucking headache after reading all that crap.

    6. More disappointing is that she apparently attended a great junior high - high school, for beaucoup bucks (ostensibly to provide a stellar academic environment), for 8 years before attending Boston University for a couple of years, and then attending the University of Baltimore for a Bachelors of Science degree in International Business. Just goes to show you...

      I don't think she'll be submitting this for an update in the fall edition of her alumni magazine. Just a guess.

    7. As an HR Director, I can declare that any prospective employee who uses a sentence like "Said success is a state of being and desire that catalyzes my aesthetic creativity and will for international culture creation..." will never get an interview at my company.

  3. It seems odd that you want her specific address, anon.
    Why do you need to know that information?

  6. This "fire bug" arsonists is so scarey. Do the police have any leads? It seems like these guys do this like a compulsion and he won't stop until he is arrested. Thankfully, no one has been killed yet.

  7. Do I recall correctly that arson doesn't count in CompStat?
