BAD DAY AT WORK: Woman Robbed Near Thorek Hospital

A Boystown woman on her way to work at Weiss Hospital was robbed early Thursday morning by two men who were armed with a handgun.

The victim told police that the two offenders approached her from behind. Then, one of the men grabbed her purse while the other man pointed a chrome semi-automatic handgun at her.

It all went down at Clarendon and Irving Park Road around 5AM.

The offenders are described as two black men between 20- and 25-years-old. The one armed with a gun stood about 5'6" tall, weighed 130 pounds, and wore a black bucket hat, a black cut-off tank top, and cargo pants.

The second offender stood about 6-feet-tall and weighed 140 pounds. He wore a red shirt and red pants.

Both men were last seen running northbound on Clarendon from Irving Park. (CPD case HY361423)

  1. Weiss Hospital is nowhere near Clarendon and Irving Park Road.

    1. You're right, thank you. She was robbed by Thorek on her way to Weiss. Much appreciated.

  2. They likely had a car waiting for them in the parking lot behind Disney school.

  3. So she wasn't stumbling home drunk at that hour. Got it.
