HAD ENOUGH? At Least Three More Robbed As Mugging Spree Continues

At least three more people have been robbed in the immediate neighborhood this weekend as a renewed wave of muggings shows little sign of slowing down:

• A man and a woman were robbed at gunpoint in the 3100 block of Kenmore around 12:40 this morning. The couple told police that two men approached them, produced a handgun, and took a wallet, a black clutch purse, and an iPhone 6 before running westbound in the south alley of Belmont.

The gunman is described as black, about 5’7” tall, skinny, and wearing a black hoodie. His accomplice is also black, stands about 6-feet tall, is also skinny and also wore a black hoodie.

• A man reported being robbed of his Galaxy Note 3 while standing at a bus stop near the Sports Authority store at Clark and Barry around 1:00AM Saturday. The offender—described as a short Hispanic man with short hair—was last seen running westbound on Fletcher.

• An offender, described only as a black male, pushed a woman to the ground and took her purse in the 400 block of Wellington at 2:30AM Saturday. He was last seen running southbound in a nearby alley.

• A victim filed a police report over the phone after having his iPhone 6 stolen from him outside of the Belmont Cafe, 930 W. Belmont, at 4:30AM Friday. The offender was described as a black man in his early 20’s. He wore a black baseball hat, a blue sweatshirt, and jeans. The incident has been categorized as a “theft from person” by the Chicago Police Department.

  1. Now where are those "extra resources" that Tunney promised to get us to handle the problem?

  2. It seems the trend is outdoor robberies are middle of the night, and inside apartment burglaries and store holdups are daytime.

    The place is still unfit to visit.

  3. Anyone up for a monthly community "take back Belmont" walk during late night hours? Skip Tunneys office and work straight with CAPS office let them handle him

    1. The CPD is busy lying with crime data. Better tact is to inform the credit rating agencies that Rahm's dissing of the profitable, wealthy neighborhoods will further erode his tax base and should lead to even lower junk status. The scumbag of a mayor has a CEO's mindset That is all he can understand.

    2. What about the Guardian Angels??

    3. The Guardian Angels haven't been around in eons. Nor have I seen any of the "North Halsted Security Detail" (private rental personnel masquerading as cops) this whole summer. And I'm out and about through the neighborhood just about every night of the week.

    4. The mainstream news showed The Guardian Angels working the streets of Lincoln Park/ DePaul after their series of sexual assaults a few weeks ago.

    5. The Angels were out recently. How does one go about recruiting them for this effort? I'd be down to do a take back if they were there as back up.

    6. I asked the Angels on Facebook 2 years ago if they would be willing to guard the Belmont station. Instead of having any decency towards a scared citizen, instead I was rudely and windfully told Tunney is the reason they don't come around. I was a concerned citizen and I felt like they rolled their eyes at me. Totally made me change my view on them. I saved the message.

  4. CAPS meeting, this Wednesday, September 2, 850 W Addison police station, 7pm. *Be there*. *Ask* Tommy Tunney about these alleged extra police resources. Demand accountability. Put the little weasel on the spot.

    1. I'd go, but I'm afraid of being mugged walking home from the CAPS meeting!

    2. Hasn't that been tried before ? Why expect different results ?

      He'll come late, dressed like he came form the beach, and when backed into a proverbial corner, he'll just yell at you, say it's your imagination, lie between his teeth, and his disgusting, commercial, fuck buddies will call him "Tommy".

      He is totally arrogant has a triple figure guaranteed government job for the next 3-1/2 years even if the whole Ward burns down. He has plenty of company. Smith to the south and Cappelman to the north are just as bad.

  5. Does anyone own a concealed gun? Seriously! I'm in Tucson and no one knows who has a concealed weapon and it's just fine with me. I left Chicago a few years ago because of the violence I witnessed but if I stayed I'd own a gun. This is really so sad! The best neighborhood I knew has gone to shit!

    1. Anyone who takes the 16 hr CCW class and carries a gun is probably the kind of person who takes precautions and is very aware of their surroundings. They also probably have upgraded their home security and so on. They also don't talk and show their concealed firearm - even to friends. This describes me.

  6. Not sure what is more of a waste of time, walking in the middle of the night or attending a CAPs meeting.
