ALERT: Cops Warn Of Robberies At Wrigleyville ATMs

Chicago police have identified a robbery pattern in which victims have been forced to withdraw money from Wrigleyville ATMs by men who displayed or implied that they had a firearm.

In the first incident, two men approached a victim near Addison and Racine around 3:10AM on April 5th and demanded cash. (CWB's original report is here.)

Then, at 3:20AM on April 12th, an offender displayed a handgun and forced a victim to withdraw cash from an ATM in the 3500 block of Clark Street. (CWB's original report is here.)

In the Racine incident, both offenders are described as black men between 20 and 30 years of age. One of them was about 5'10" tall, 145 pounds, with short hair. He wore a black beanie had with a red stripe. Both men fled in a black car.

The gunman on Clark Street is described as a black man between 18 and 25 years of age, 6' tall, 160 pounds, short air, wearing a black sweatshirt with white stripes or lettering, and black jeans.

  1. The type of people and the type of cars just circling that area at night really raises eyebrows. I've noticed it for years. I've never seen those type of people in any of the businesses around there. I can't imagine they're visiting their girlfriend or drove that far for 1000 Liquors. Just circling. There are plenty of parking spots too.

  2. I am not blaming the victim, but given the realities, you have to be quite foolish to use an ATM at 3am.

  3. Incidents occurred on the 5th & 12th and the alert was issued on the 16th?! I feel safe!

  4. I know I will be bashed for blaming the victims, but anyone who goes to an ATM to withdraw cash at 3:00AM is just asking for it.
