MUGGED AT NOON: Woman Jumped Near Diversey & Sheridan

A Lake View woman was knocked to the ground and robbed of her purse and cell phone Thursday afternoon. No one is in custody.

According to a witness, the woman was in an alley adjacent to the Brewster Apartments, 2800 N. Pine Grove, when she was attacked and robbed around 12:15PM.

The woman got up and chased after the offender, but he managed to escape in a red minivan.

The robber is described as a very tall black man who was wearing a turquoise do-rag or hairnet.

Bad Night

A man who was wearing only one shoe and his underwear told police that he was robbed sometime after Tuesday’s AC/DC concert at Wrigley Field.

The victim, whose memories of the evening are foggy, said that he remembered being punched in the head and robbed, but he doesn’t know where his clothes went or how he wound up between some dumpsters at Wunder’s Cemetery near the 3800 block of Racine.

  1. Tunneys response to the lady in the alley would be: "don't go into alleys." How do I know this? Because he said so in his idiotic ABC7 interview piece the other day. Tunneys response to the near-naked guy near the dumpster would be: "watch you drink." How do I know this? Because he said so in his idiotic ABC7 interview piece the other day.

    Tunney, Tunney, he's the man! I'm so proud this ward re-elected him as alderpuss for another term.

  2. So, let me think. How do we blame this young woman for being pushed to the ground and robbed? Hmmmmm.

  3. Yikes, drunk and wandering around alone in our hood late at night... like lambs to a slaughter. Its bad enough late at night sober walking your dog and on high alert. This poor guy, one shoe, in his underwear, beaten up and wakes up between dumpsters no less. Its out of a movie, sort of funny to read, but not so funny if it happened to you.

  4. 2800 N. Pine Grove is within spitting distance of Tunney's residence.

  5. Great follow through, pursuit and arrest. Good job .. thank you very much, CPD!

  6. She must have missed Tunney's love fest on the news. Should have listened to him. I mean - broad day light. In an alley. What was she thinking?

  7. Tunney lives a block away from that intersection. All he does is look pretty for the cameras and breaking ground for new constructions. Where are our promised cops we are supposed to get?

    1. No matter how hard he could try...he will never "look pretty." He looks like a ventriloquist's dummy and the words coming out of his mouth are just bullshit.

  8. Well, he said he was asking for more resources for our neighborhood. When the staff at Police Headquarters stopped laughing at his request, they said NO !. Go back to ribbon cutting and wait for the next election. You are a shoe in.

  9. Promised cops? Remember Tunny voted with the mayor not to hire more police. Cut more ribbons and get more photo ops. Use your shovel to clean curbs and make noise the first of each year for street cleaning then never show up for the rest of the year. Let's vote for him again next election. Oh, I forgot a $500 million increase in our taxes next year. I wonder how he is going to vote? ? ? ? ? YES !
