ESTÚPIDA: Taco Fest Robbery Attempt Puts Woman In Jail

At least one offender is in custody after an attempted robbery at the Sam Adams Lakeview Taco Fest yesterday afternoon.

A victim reported that a man and a woman grabbed him and tried to take his cell phone near Southport and Cornelia about 4:45PM. Needless to say, there were plenty of witnesses on-hand.

Responding officers placed a woman into custody at 3413 N. Southport after she was positively identified by witnesses as being involved.

CWB Chicago has not been able to confirm the status of the other offender, who is described as a black man in a white t-shirt, who stands about 6-feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds.

Purse Thief Arrested

An off-duty police officer detained a man for stealing a woman’s purse near Cornelia and Marshfield around 2:45PM on Friday afternoon.

CWB has learned that the suspect, who originally claimed to be a juvenile, is actually 22-years-old.

An ambulance was called to assist the victim. Robbery charges are pending.

    1. Who pays for for-profit prisons? Taxpayers. Better the state run prisons for better transparency and oversight.

    1. Why not? They'll end up with probation anyway. It's not like a criminal record is going to prevent them from getting all those great jobs they've been making themselves qualified for.

    2. Sadly, William Shaw is correct. There is little to no punishment for their crimes. Probation certainly doesn't deter them, and allows them to remain free to terrorize others.

      It's as if the judges and politicos are handing over the streets to the thugs. What ever happened to the rights of the tax paying citizens? Why is it OK to allow thugs like this to take over our neighborhood? Why is this being allowed???

  3. If the judges are going to give the criminals probation, can't they at least put cow bells around their necks so we cam see them coming?

    1. They couldn't find a cow bell large enough to fit around the entire Center on Halsted.

  4. Can we mark them with a "Scarlett Letters" of F for felon, T for thief, etcetera?

    1. If a cowardly thug attacks you from behind, what good does it do to have him marked?
