BOTTOM OF THE BARREL: Man In Wheelchair Robbed

A man in a wheelchair became our neighborhood’s latest mugging victim Wednesday when he was allegedly robbed at knifepoint in broad daylight.

The man, who resides in a Lincoln Park assisted living center, told police that an unknown offender pulled a knife on him in the 3000 block of Halsted, took his backpack, and fled on foot.

He described the offender as a “skinny, lanky” black man who stands about 5’8” tall. (CPD case HY363198)

  1. I'm surprised they didn't steal his chair and try to sell it for scrap.

    1. It didn't have shiny rims.

  2. Now you've given them a new idea and they will be back for the chair!
