#56: Boystown Robbers Beat Victim, Put Gun In His Mouth

Two offenders punched a man in the face and placed a silver handgun in his mouth during a robbery in the heart of Boystown overnight.

Uncyclopedia
The victim told police that he was walking from Halsted to Broadway on Roscoe Street when the robbery took place around 2:05AM. It is at least the 56th robbery in Wrigleyville and Boystown this year.

Both offenders fled toward Halsted Street after the crime.

The gunman is described as a white man wearing a gray hoodie and hat. Offender #2 is described only as a black male.

No one is in custody.

Saturday Muggings

A Wrigleyville woman reported being robbed near her home by three men at 10:45 Saturday evening. She told police that the three attacked her near Newport and Racine, then fled with her laptop and purse.

All three men were last seen running southbound on Racine, according to a witness.

The three offenders are described as black men with slim builds who stand about 6-feet tall. Two wore dark hoodies and one wore a gray hoodie.

• Earlier Saturday, a Wrigleyville man was punched in the face and robbed in the 1000 block of W. Grace. The victim told police that he was attacked from behind as he walked near his home around 3:30AM.  He described the offender as a 29-year-old Hispanic man who stands about 6’2” tall. The offender was last seen running northbound on Kenmore from Grace.

  1. And Tunney's Facebook page continues to be void of negative comments against crime and only praise for his "leadership" in the community. Can't figure out why the citizens aren't willing to get vocal about taking back their community.

    1. Tunney and his staff are awful. They are about as helpful as one of these prowlers running around the hood.- and this is a hood now

    2. he is too busy fighting the Cubs, again, to worry about crime. This time he is worried that nearby bars will lose business to the new Cubs plaza. But really, I am over blaming Tunney. He is weak and ineffectual. We know this. It won't change. Either vote him out or more of the same.

    3. Sorry but for some unknown reason, the voters in the ward keep voting for Tunney. I sure dont understand why?

  2. Wow, I live on Roscoe between Halsted and Broadway and vaguely recall some commotion that woke me up during the night. Scary.

  3. It's not scary. We need to be smart and the Cops/Aldermen?Residents need to do something. Not just be scared... #1Concealed Carry, #2 Not going to bars this late at night or maybe, just maybe the #3 Cops need to walk this beat between 1-6a.m. These robbers need to know there is a presence.-END OF STORY

    1. You've got this in entirely the wrong order -- It's not someone's fault if they're assaulted/robbed/whatever if they are out at ANY time. More like #1: parents need to stop raising savages and start raising decent human beings

  4. The time has come for all Lakeview residents to take action and demand change and more police presence in our community. Perhaps protesting in front of Tunney's and Cappleman's offices and/or residences and the police station will bring attention nd resolve to the situation.

    1. If you want to get his attention, picket his restaurants on Saturday and Sunday. A couple weeks of that will get his attention.

    2. Allocation of police resources is not in the hands of the alderman.

    3. Why picket at his restaurants? His cinnamon rolls taste like 3 day old bread and the rest of his dishes available are fair to poor. His swedish pancakes use to be good but now they taste like saran wrap.

  5. As someone watching from a distance, I am waiting to read someone armed drops a few of these cretins. Prob the only thing that might give your redline posse pause.

    1. Already happened a few months ago on Halsted/Oakdale. Never happened around Detroit gay bars because it's assumed everyone is strapped (even though they're not).

      "An armed society is a polite society". I never knew what this meant, nor cared to, until living in Lakeview East.....not just E. Lakeview mind you....the fancier part.

      It's only a matter of time until another one takes 2 bullets to the chest over a cell phone unless ya'll wake up, put the politics aside, and take off the rose-colored glasses.

    2. .....in addition, the business/bar owners made quite sure we were taken care of.

    3. The one year anniversary of the murder of Kevin O'Malley is May 30th. I read the CWB everyday and nothing has changed since then. Thanks for doing absolutely NOTHING about crime and violence in the area Tunney. RIP Kevin - we love you and miss you.

    4. Oh, come on now. Tunney is doing all he can. He voted for the $550 million plus tax increase with the failed promise of a "few" more police officers for the district. His web site shows his attendance at the wine parties for local groups and a good number of photos of him at ribbon cutting openings for anything from a new hamburger stand to a pet grooming salon. What more do you expect him to do with his "part time" job ? ? ?

  6. How do things like this happen? I see those big police SUV's everywhere I turn in this city. Makes no sense.

    1. Not in East Lakeview you don't. Merged districts manpower moved to South and West side to shut up the store front Reverends.

  7. We HAVE to stop this!! We have to organizing our own watch group since there doesn't seem to be enough police patrolling the areas. God help anybody who pulls a gun on me, and I get ahold of it.

    1. Yes, we have to stop it. But for fucks sake do you really think a watch group will stop it? The cops make arrests now and Lucky G just cuts them lose. What to make a real difference make sure these clown judges and politicians don't get re-elected.

      And if someone pulls a gun on you, I bet you will shit your pants or get shot if you try to get ahold of it. Get a FOID card, have friend you knows about guns and isn't a macho wannabe help you buy a gun or do lots of research online about buying your first gun. Then get lots of training (including force on force) before you apply for conceal carry. Then carry everywhere you legally can becuase you will capable of defending yourself if the need arises.

    2. Call the media, and picket Ann Sathers, Wrigley Field and Rahm's house. All easy walking distance.

  8. Remember folks - the reason you don't hear about CCW armed citizens taking these bad guys down is that 'we' don't walk around at night - usually not past 10PM. If out later, we take Uber/taxis. We never walk in alleys at night. We are hyper-vigilant and aware of our surroundings. Every time we walk out the door of our condo/apt/home - we are thinking about safety.
