PEW! PEW! PEW!: Gang Robs 3 At Gunpoint In Lakeview Coach House Hold-Up

Three occupants of a Lakeview coach house were robbed at gunpoint late on Halloween night by four or five offenders who brandished at least one firearm. One of the victims was pistol-whipped, police said.

According to statements by a witness, up to five men entered the coach house in the 3400 block of N. Janssen Avenue shortly after 2 o'clock Sunday morning.

The primary offender pointed a chrome handgun with an extended magazine at the victims, who were relieved of wallets and at least one cell phone.

One witness believed that some of the other offenders were also armed.

The victim of the pistol-whipping was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment after being struck with the main offender's gun.

All of the robbers were black men, police said. The main man wore a hoodie with black sleeves and a gray body.

The crew was last seen running northbound in the alley behind the coach house and then eastbound on Cornelia.

  1. Now that's pure terror!! If citizens and politicians of this city don't believe this type of crime is something to stop before it gets even more out of hand, then Chicago and everyone who remains in it deserves what they get.

    1. Unfortunately Rahm places far more importance on being credited for restoring the city's finances than he does of the poor victims of this or any of the dozens of violent and non-violent crimes which are occurring every single day in Lakeview...so he cut the number of police officers by thousands...and so the increase in crime of course follows

  2. wow, wake up Lakeview. This info should be printed and plastered all over Southport immediately. If you're smart enough to be reading this blog, let your neighbors know what is happening.

    1. Well said. Maybe the name of this blog should be Crime in Wrigleyville + Boystown + Southport + Roscoe Village + Lincoln Park + Lincoln Square? Because this crime wave has clearly spilled out beyond just Boystown and Wrigleyville.

    2. I agree. A lot of our neighbors still are unaware of all the crime up here.
      This is dangerous, when is someone going to do something about this?
      Were is the media coverage?

    3. Sadly, there isn't much that can be done. Rahm slashed the number of police officers by 2,000 or 3,000, and there aren't enough now to police our neighborhood.

  3. Did they follow the coach house renters/ owners home? Or how did they enter? it was brought up to me that maybe this wasn't random? Has anyone heard anything?

  4. A hoodie with black sleeves and a gray body. I'll be more cautious if I see someone wearing a sweatshirt like that. It's a little unusual.

  5. Here's an idea that might shake things up (and likely get some press). Welcome CCL holders into the community. Put CCL Holder Welcome signs in the store windows. At coffee shops and restaurants, offer a free cup of coffee (with any purchase) to anyone with a valid CCL card.

  11. Do you want to send Rahm and his minions a message? Show them you can take care of yourselves. Carry pepper spray, a knife, club, anything, and fight back if threatened. This is YOUR LIFE on the line, the thugs do not care, and think you're weak. Get a $10 FOID card, and you can be armed at home or in your business. A bit more work and money, and you can carry a gun almost anywhere. Just one man's advice. https://www.ispfsb.com
