BIG WHACK: Man Beaten, Robbed Near Wrigley Field

The latest additions to the weekend’s list of muggings:

• A man was beaten by three men and robbed of a credit card across the street from Wrigley Field at 5:15 this morning. The victim was near the McDonald’s parking lot at 3620 N. Clark when the offenders began the attack.

All three offenders were black men, one of whom had two-tone hair: blonde on top, black on the sides. The three were last seen heading southbound on Clark in a blue Toyota.

An ambulance transported the victim to Thorek Hospital.

• An Uptown man was beaten and robbed of his iPhone, wallet, and inhaler near Clarendon and Buena at 3 o’clock this morning. The victim told officers that two black men in their 20’s approached, beat him up, and took his property. Both offenders stand about 5’10” tall and both wore bandanas. One wore a red shirt and the other wore a black shirt.

• A man borrowed a woman’s phone to call 911 after he was reportedly robbed at gunpoint near Addison and Ashland at about 3:10AM today. The man gave detailed descriptions of the offenders, but he was no longer on the scene when officers arrived, so no report was filed. The suspect descriptions are:
1) male, black, gray hoodie, black shorts, black shoes
2) male, black, early 20’s puffy red sweater, black shirt, black shorts, gym shoes, armed with a gun
Both suspects were last seen eastbound on Addison. The victim was last seen heading westbound according to the woman who helped him out.

  1. Now if we had private security none of this would have happened. Right Tom ? ? ?

  2. Oh, for everyones information, private security guards have No police powers. About the only thing they can do is call 9-1-1 and hope to get a response in an hour or two.

    1. Private security officers possess the same lawful authority to make an arrest as any other private citizen. They similarly possess the same lawful authority to use the force necessary to effect that arrest.

    2. No, they don't.They have NO authority.

    3. Read the law. Security officers possess the same authority to arrest a criminal offender as any other person does. You too may lawfully detain/arrest a criminal offender until police arrive and may use the force necessary to effect that arrest. Read the law!

  3. I thought the story about the guy who borrowed a woman's phone to call 911 was going to end with the guy walking off with her phone...but then again I guess I've just become jaded and cynical due to all the crime.

  4. Blonde on top and black on the sides is Robert Vacha AKA Jacob Lapinskas, the coward who mugged an old lady.

    2. What's the latest on little Robert/Jacob anyway? Is he still locked up or is he out on the streets amongst us once again?

    3. Check out her Facebook page under the name Jacob Lapinskas...she has been out again for about a month.

    4. Yep, little Robert/Jacob is out among us again. I saw her hanging out twice this week in Peet's Coffee @ Cornelia, just sitting there, not purchasing anything, scowling at passersby. Can't believe that Big Bertha morning manager in there let's him take up scant available space. In fact she gave Bob/Jake a free coffee. I don't use hashtags, but, damn .... #smh.

  5. Why don't the police consider setting up some decoys and arresting the perps? Seems like every second person walking around at 3am gets mugged.

    1. Then they have a crime to report. Goal is to reduce crime STATS. Metrics is all that matter to the scumbag Rahm.

    2. Are you volunteering as a decoy?

      Delete
    3. I actually like the decoy idea and have thought about doing it and I'm a cop. The problem is if we get shot with no vest we'd get in a lot of trouble for not wearing one (it's required). We'd get sued for not identifying ourselves as police as the act would likely be viewed as reckless. Lastly, people and bosses would complain because it's not likely that we would for sure be robbed. Lastly, there is a high probability of a shooting as we go for our gun and announce our office, which plays into the above issues. In summary, that's never going to happen.

    4. I have actually thought about doing it as a private citizen. Imagine that. I make 350K a year, have 2 kids, and am willing to bait and catch these guys.

  6. "last seen heading southbound on Clark" There is a CPD high res camera at Clark and Addison which, if in operation, should have captured the get away and maybe even the crime. But who has time to review the video? I wonder if CPD will ever make their surveillance cameras public? More eyeballs all the time. the1stmikec

  8. As long as the robberies happen before 330am then the midnight robbery mission cars might catch them, after 330 sgt Drew Carrey and his merry band of thieves are in the wind.

    1. It was a beaten up old Flxible that belongs at a museum.

    2. Well it looked hilarious parked in front of those bars on Halsted. Bring it back even if it has to be towed. That temporary prison on wheels needs a permament home there.

      Once it's there let me know so I can flatten the tires to ensure it stays in place.
