BOYSTOWN: Two charged with breaking man's nose, stealing phones

Two transgender women are charged with multiple counts of battery and theft in connection with a reported robbery on Boystown’s Halsted bar strip July 16. One of the victims suffered a broken nose in the attack, according to court records.

As CWB Chicago reported the next morning, three victims told police that they were beaten and robbed at Halsted and Newport by a group of four offenders, including one described as a tall black man dressed as a woman wearing red wig, and “Daisy Duke” shorts.

Now, prosecutors say 22-year-old Kenneth “Barbie” Floyd of the South Deering neighborhood and 24-year-old Shatrell Bellfield of North Las Vegas NV, are each charged with three counts of battery and two counts of theft in the case.

The two were taken into custody near Belmont and Sheffield around midnight on July 22—nearly a week after the incident—after the victims happened to see them in the area, police said.

All three victims—two women and a man—are friends from Chicago’s southwest suburbs.

Both women lost their phones in the incident and the man suffered a broken nose, according to court records.

The next community policing meeting for Wrigleyville and Boystown will be at the 19th district station, 850 W. Addison, at 7PM on Wednesday, August 3.

  1. why is it that police do NOT watch for the criminals and never patrol this neighborhood. We need to all call the alderman Tunney and tell him crime is to high in this neighborhood. Why does the center on Halsted keep bringing down these criminal types to then loiter in our neighborhood to commit violent crimes

    1. Come on out and start a neighborhood watch. Apparently you know how to be the Police so here is a better idea, take the test and join CPD!!!! We never watch criminals? Talk to your Officers before you say ignorant things like that

    2. Also thanks to liberal laws, loitering is not illegal and your Police cannot stop a individual now just on assumption that the person maybe a bad guy-girl. Your private entity the ACLU has stopped that. Keep reaping what you sow citizens

    3. Not the fault of the Police. This is the liberal utopia.
      Our, so called leaders, from the president down look at the Police as the problem and always presume them to be in the wrong before even bothering to look at the facts. Why would you expect them to risk their pension and possibly their very freedom by doing what would have once been considered basic policing. Don't blame the police, blame liberal thinking, race hustlers, the ACLU, pandering politicians, weak judges, but most of all, blame the mindless voters who keep inflicting this on themselves yet blame everyone else!!! Morons!!!!!!!!!!!!
      The CPD would have not been allowed to shoot at the Bastille day terrorist without breaking department regulations, idiotic!!
      I, for one, stand 100% behind our police (no matter how many speeding tickets I get)

  2. So are these men who have completely changed over, or are they just using women's clothing as a 'disguise'?

    1. They are simply disguises and I don't care who wants to call the PC police on me as I'm gay but this has been going on for a decade and the gay community and the business owners on that strip need to address this 24/7/365 Halloween for obvious crime purposes.

    2. They are really messed up Trans people. I see them all the time in Boystown they are known to a lot of people.

    3. as a disguise YES while they are trans. first the are criminals and should not be able to use free stuff in this neighborhood. Center On Halsted is promoting them and offering the a place to sleep so the Center on halsted gets money while we get robbed, broken noses and stabbed robed

    4. We use terms such as "men dressed as women" or "man in a dress" until we learn more about the individual(s) being described. In this instance, there are specific details in the individuals' arrest reports that allow us to use the term "transgender" confidently.

  3. Whoa. I've seen that red-haired thug (thugette?) hanging out in Peets Coffee charging her (stolen?) devices and taking up space without buying any Peet's products (because they allow her to do it). Maybe these two upstanding citizens will get more than the usual slap on the wrist, but I'm not holding out any hopes.

    1. I've also seen "her" at Center on Halsted. About charging, one *good* thing COH has done is to plug up all electrical outlets in public areas (lobby, computer center, etc.), there is a strictly - enforced ban on charging in these areas. So when their devices die and they want to re-charge, they've no choice but to eventually move on. Unfortunately, they'll usually just move on to Peet's or wherever to charge...

    2. COH removed atm, outlets,etc.
      WF removed atm..armed guards all over. So everyone suffers for the few...Shut that sh*thole sham tax write-off down

      Delete
  4. Why even arrest them at this point?

    1. Exactly! CPD must like getting their federal lawsuits for malicious prosecution and more when these cases of innocent offenders gets tossed in court

  5. Battery and Theft?! Why won't they approve felony charges for people that are clearly robbing folks on the street. A robbery is a theft with force and a felony... Yet they are only being charged with battery and theft. Doesn't make sense.

  6. theft, and battery? Theft by force? That's called strong arm robbery!
    Maybe they are purposely not charging felony crimes to keep things out of the felony branch court...

  7. Maybe some of us who actually live in this neighborhood ought to strongly consider exercising the legal rights provided under the Second Amendment. Trust me, after a couple of times, the word will travel like wild fire amongst all of those who otherwise think they can easily come into our neighborhood and commit the acts of crime that are regularly reported in this blog. People around here need to wake up and become proactive, or sadly, it will only get worse.

    1. Was this copied and pasted from 2010?

    2. The city of Chicago has made it very difficult for law-abiding Chicago residents to get guns, first by outlawing it for decades (until an elderly Chicago man sued all the way to the Supreme Court and won), and now by not approving any shooting facilities within the city at which you could get trained and licensed. Only the cops and criminals and a few select VIPs get to carry guns in Chicago.

    3. Not true. I legally carry, and I am a nobody.

    4. Okay, then things have only recently changed. As of a few years ago, the above was true.

  8. Well, I hope they get Judge Luckman so they can be back on the street in 5 minutes and do some more "picking".

  9. Rahm and Tunney are playing us all like fools. They know that the gay and liberal community is going to vote for the so they get away with anything. We are the fools.

    1. And fools for patronizing those businesses that cram the same down your throat.

  10. What you all need to do is take this article to peers and center on halsted and ask why are they allowing them to use their facilities? CAPS isn't going to solve much. And now Pride is a distant memory to everyone it will be the same song and pony show. You all need to start questioning the businesses what their doing if anything to curb the crime. I know one thing everyone can do. The next tine your out, dint just pass that light pole, mailbox, traffic control box with gang markings, go download the Chicago works app and REPORT IT. HELP CLEAN UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD U LIVE IN. I report all the time.
