VALENTINE'S DAZED: Robbery Charges For South Side Man Who Stole Purse In Lakeview

A South Side man is charged with robbery after he allegedly stole a 58-year-old woman's purse in Lakeview two weeks ago. A private citizen captured the suspect and an off-duty officer helped detain the man for cops.

Noel Valentine, 22, entered the victim's backyard in the 3400 block of N Marshfield around 2:45PM on September 18 and asked her for directions, prosecutors say. He then took the woman's purse from a back porch and crashed into the victim as he tried to run out the rear gate.

The screaming victim ran after Valentine, who was promptly tackled by a 40-year-old man.

Police say they found Valentine in possession of the woman's purse.

He is additionally charged with theft of lost or mislaid property because cops say he was unable to explain why he was also in possession of a state ID and MasterCard that had been issued to a Calumet Park woman.

The second woman was the victim of a strong arm robbery in the West Pullman neighborhood on December 9, 2014, cops say. She lost her purse, cell phone, and miscellaneous credit and debit cards in the attack.

Bail for Valentine is set at $80,000.

  2. When one of them approaches and asks either for directions or the time, you know you are about to be mugged.

    1. That's Lakeview/Lincoln Park/Downtown 101.

      When they "Sir" you, you KNOW it's a scam.

    2. I always keep on walking when they try and stop you and tell them I am late for whatever. Never slow down!

    3. Never speak to them at all. If your reply isn't what they want to hear or HOW they expected it to sound, they may attack anyway. There is much proof of this.

  5. More like "Shit, I heard there were no police up here! What the hell?!" LOL you stupid moron. Go tell your idiot buddies that just because we have fewer police doesn't mean we're going to be sitting ducks. FUCK YOU AND YOUR STUPID THUG FRIENDS. Go somewhere else.

    1. The last thing I'd want is to look like Buckwheat in one of those mugshots. He's young though and probably never saw the show. Actually, I think it's not aired anymore because it's considered politically incorrect now.

    3. No chance! Word's out, we are easy pickings. Friday around 6pm witnessed a man get shoved while on his cell phone at the Belmont L stop.
      The thug took his phone and ran down Belmont. How come more people are not aware of all the crime up here? The PC culture is doing more harm than good.
