WICKED: I Was Stabbed During A Robbery In Oz Park, Teen Says

A 17-year-old Lincoln Park boy was reportedly stabbed during an armed robbery in Oz Park early Wednesday morning.

Police were called at 4:30AM after the teen showed up at St. Joseph's Hospital with a stab wound to his leg. The boy initially refused to tell hospital workers where the stabbing took place, but he eventually revealed details to officers.

The park, located at Lincoln and Webster in nearby Lincoln Park, is famous for its Wizard of Oz-themed statues of Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Dorothy and her little dog, too.

  1. A 17-year old in a park at 4:30AM is not up to anything good.

    1. Yep, and the fact that he initially REFUSED to cooperate with police....well, that says it all.

    2. Agreed, especially a 17 year old who at first refuses to say where the stabbing took place.

    3. Not to mention the park is CLOSED at 4:30 am, so he's trespassing to begin with.

  2. Maybe he was meeting with his college counsellor.

  4. Speaking of criminal mayhem, is the "muggers gang
    way" still open next to Leona's ? Last time I went by it was wide open for use by miscreants. This is a public safety hazard and should be gated at both ends. Anyone considering face booking Sheriff Tom Dart and asking for his gang unit to run some patrols through Lakeview at night ? I bet the Sheriffs Police have some talented people that could be utilized.

  5. FYI Horrific >>>20 yr old female stabbed/killed in the middle of the day, in an alley / Lincoln Square / W. Sunnyside.. When will the mayor and supt wake up to the cold-blooded gangs and the violence they're unleashing? I'm not hearing ANYthing being done about these monsters. If I'm uninformed, please let me know, but every day they seem to be more free to do their evil.

    Comment .. makes my blood run cold.

    Don't dismiss the possibility... Three months ago, a gang execution took place in an alley exactly 8 blocks north from this incident, just after 6 on a Sunday evening. Though the homes may not be quite as pricey, the neighborhood is at least as quiet as the one where this occurred. The gang-bangers involved lived nowhere near here but, for whatever reason (lack of cops?), they chose the alley between Winnemac/Argyle/Oakley/Leavitt as the place to have their victim get out of the SUV, kneel down in the alley and take a bullet to the head.

    I don't think our wonderful corner of Chicago is any less safe, but I do believe we need to be aware, especially around the alleys. Know your neighbors (at least by face), report anything that looks suspicious, and don't walk and talk/text (it only makes you a distracted target).

    Then there's Lincoln Park, upscale, desirable and lovely .. the heroin supplier liked living there, too.

    Great work by the DEA and CPD!

  6. THIS is the justice necessary to stop the gang gun violence, destruction and killing.

    Man gets 51 years for fatal shooting over gang affiliation

    We need more .. and need to vote for more judges like Judge Vincent Gaughan when they surprisingly appear in this town.

    Sure hope he sticks around for awhile and more like him show up.

  7. Hey, WTF! Did you take the holiday weekend off? What am I supposed to do, count on the MSM media for things that are normally on the blog? I haven't seen a single thing on Ch. 7 about anything happening in Wrigleyville. Does that mean nothing happened over the last 3 days because YOU haven't put anything up either! NO DAYS OFF FOR YOU!!!
