THANKS, WRIGLEYVILLE: 24 Hours Apart, Two Are Robbed In The Exact Same Spot

Newly-released Chicago police records show that two people were robbed at knife-point 24-hours apart at the exact same spot in Wrigleyville last weekend. No one is in custody.

Both victims were mugged between the Cubby Bear Lounge, 1059 W. Addison, and the Wrigleyville Taco Bell.

One attack took place at 2 o'clock last Saturday morning and the second followed at 2:15AM Sunday.

According to a source, Sunday's victim, who was found beaten and bleeding from the mouth by officers assigned to the Wrigleyville police "entertainment detail," lost $250 to the attackers.

He described the offenders as three black men in white t-shirts who fled eastbound on Addison.

Another Mugging For Wrigleyville

Chicago police were flagged down early on Halloween morning by a man who said he had been surrounded and robbed by four men at a nearby ATM.

The robbery took place near Addison and Racine around 1:15AM, police said.

According to the victim, all four offenders were black men, one of whom had dreadlocks and wore a blue jacket.

Hot Ticket

A Lakeview man was beaten up and robbed when he ventured out to sell a couple of concert tickets early last Thursday, Chicago police said.

The victim told officers that he was supposed to meet a guy to sell the tickets near Ashland and Grace around midnight. Instead, two guys showed up, trounced him, and stole his tickets.

When he managed to catch up with one of the thieves, a third offender "came out of nowhere" and joined in the robbery, the man said.

On a positive note, the victim managed to maintain possession of one of the offender's cell phones. Hearing that always warms our hearts a bit.

The offenders were described as two black men--one of whom was 5'10" tall and weighed about 200 pounds--and a third person. They escaped in a white sedan, possibly an Impala.

  1. I'm sorry to complain, but please don't tie up our few police officers by agreeing to meet someone on a street corner at midnight to sell your concert tickets.

  5. 2am Halloween in heart of Wrigleyville! There must have been tons of people right there. And now the home invasions, that’s what I call a burglary when victim is present. The thugs have emboldened themselves and I don’t see any end to it. the1stmikec

  6. Yes, because I always agree to meet people at midnight on a deserted street to sell concert tickets. Someone's not quite telling the truth.

    2. Ashland and Grace is hardly deserted at midnight. The bar literally at that corner is always packed and open until 2AM.

  7. Ashland & Grace at midnight? Seems like there is always a gaggle of old British guys smoking outside of AJ Hudson's at that hour. Surprised nobody saw it.
