RUDE: Radio Reporter Robbed

A Chicago radio reporter became the latest Boystown mugging victim Saturday when a woman brandished a weapon and robbed him in a vehicle in the 600 block of Cornelia around 2:05AM. She then fled in the car.

The man's call sat around for over six minutes before an officer became available to take the assignment. Even then, that officer had to respond from the opposite side of the district at Belmont and Western.

Tired of waiting, the man went on a hunt to find an officer himself. He found one at Halsted and Brompton.

The offender is described as a black woman wearing a black top and blue jeans. CPD case HY262146.

  1. They say an area has as much crime as the people are willing to put up with. Why are Chicagoans so accepting of crime?

  2. Since North Siders view their side as safer than South Side, so they feel lucky, safe, accept it, and voted for Rahmbo, Smith, Tunney, and Cappelman.

    There will be little difference between the 2 side sin a few years.
    Detroit in the making and the residents and businesses have only themselves to blame.

  3. Some people are oblivious to the extent of the crime and they vote for same idiot politicians and the rest of us are helpless to get more police or get politicians to address the truth.

  4. Good god -- do you people not know that you can't change the laws of physics? What about this do you not get?
    Nothing CAN be done.
    "I was told very clearly that it's not aldermen making requests or the public making requests. 911 calls help, arrests help. You can do all kinds of petitions [to get more officers], but that's not going to work. It's going to frustrate you."
    Oracle Cappleman has shone you the light of truth and fact.
    Everything that IS possible IS being done.
    Please just shut up and give thanks that you are privileged to receive such great service.

  5. This reporter has the unique opportunity of not reporting on his own robbery.
