Women Robbed In Lakeview, Wrigleyville, Boystown Friday

The incoming snow and arctic cold cannot get here soon enough for us.

While yesterday's triple-shooting in nearby North Center takes the headlines, there have been plenty of other incidents to report:

Yesterday, 9:03PM
After escaping two would-be robbers outside of Wrigley Field, an Uptown woman seeks help at the 19th district police station. The woman says two people jumped out of a silver Altima with no rear license plate, then shoved her against a wall, and tried to take her purse and phone. She managed to slip away and the offenders fled northbound on Sheffield. They are described as a black female with a black male working as the driver.

Yesterday, 9:37PM
A woman is knocked to the ground and robbed of her purse just steps from her home in the 3700 block of N. Marshfield. She tells police that two people, including one possibly Hispanic man, got out of a small gray SUV and robbed her. The vehicle is last seen heading westbound on Grace.

Yesterday, 11:30PM
A woman is knocked to the ground and robbed of her purse outside the Belmont Red Line Station. The offender, described as a black man in his mid-20's, is last seen running northbound on Wilton. He is wearing a red jacket and has a cast on one arm. Also, his socks are pulled up over his pants legs. The victim is treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center for a head injury.

    1. Domestic incident. 3 with stab/slash wounds. All should be OK.

  2. Do we believe this is unusual for the neighborhood or do we just have more resources to report this now? Per reports crime is down still in Lakeview

  3. I'm asking this around the internet. 1) are these early parolees? 2) what are the LLs doing to monitor who lives in their buildings?
    I lived in two apartments in Edgewater and the LL lived in the building. He knew who was coming and going. They both had surveillance cameras. No crimes in the buildings.
    I just wonder who the owners of these buildings are.

  4. Crime should be down with all the new police officers being sent to our district. Remember Tunny was promised additional officers if he voted for the new tax increases.

    1. The tax increases are to keep pension plans solvent, not hire more cops.
      As long as they lie about crime stats, they will see no need for more cops.

    1. Never. This is the new America. We are a slightly richer Brazil.
