Woman Mugged On Rahm's Street Tuesday Afternoon...And The Offenders Got Away

An unmarked police unit sits outside of Mayor Rahm Emanuel's home at 4228 N. Hermitage (Google Street View)
A woman had her computer bag snatched from her hand in the 4200 block of N. Hermitage yesterday afternoon—the same block that is home to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his 24/7 personal police force.

No one is in custody.

The woman was walking near Emanuel’s home shortly after 1PM Tuesday when a teenager jumped out of a “very old black Cadillac,” grabbed her computer bag from her hand, and then fled in the same vehicle. She was not injured.

Police describe the offender as a black male teenager wearing a white tank top and black cargo pants.

The crime has been classified as a theft.

The mayor's home is protected around the clock by at least eight police officers who are assigned to patrol our 19th district. The force includes at least two cops in front of Emanuel's home, at least two more in the rear of his home, a sergeant, and "roving units" that make circles around the block.

There is no information as to why the mayor’s home protection detail did not intervene in the attack on the woman or report the crime to other units.

The victim is 50-years-old.

Punched And Robbed In Lakeview

A Lake View man was punched in the face and robbed by an offender who jumped out of a silver minivan in the 1300 block of W. Roscoe on Sunday morning.

The man was walking around 6AM when the passenger—described only as a 5’8” black man—got out of the van, punched him in the nose, and then stole his iPhone. The vehicle fled westbound on Roscoe.

Other Robberies

• The Subway restaurant at 2825 N. Ashland was robbed at gunpoint of several hundred dollars Saturday afternoon. The offender is described as a 30-year-old black man who stands about 6-feet tall, weighs about 210 pounds, and has a beard and “large lips.” He was last seen westbound on Wolfram wearing a black shirt, black hat, and black clothing.

• Two days before the Subway robbery, a woman was robbed at gunpoint just two blocks away. The woman was near Wrightwood and Ashland at 2:30AM on Thursday when an offender displayed a gun, punched her in the face, and stole her purse. She described the offender as a black male teenager.

• A pizza delivery driver was pistol-whipped and robbed near Clark and Montrose shortly after midnight on Thursday. Three to five men surrounded the driver as he got out to make a delivery and one of the robbers hit him in the face with a handgun. All three men then rifled through the victim’s car and stole his pizzas, but they did not take the money from his pants pocket.  All three offenders were described as black male teenagers.

  1. All those coppers sitting around the mayors house. Driving his kids to school etc. and they don't (probably not allowed) lift a finger to stop crime within a block? They represent a big percentage of our 19 police force. I'll bet Rahm wouldn't have merged the police stations if he didn't have that detail. Selfish jerk.

    1. The drivers are actually a assigned unit not of 19 district

    2. We aren't speaking of his personal detail. We are writing about the units that are assigned to his house. Those come from the 19th district's manpower and they even have their own 19th district beat number (but you'll never see it on a department map).

  2. I really and truly cannot believe that you can't even walk down the fucking street in the middle of the afternoon, ON THE SAME FUCKING BLOCK THE MAYOR LIVES ON WITH HIS POLICE DETAIL THERE, without fear of some thug piece of shit getting out of a car and robbing you. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAMN AFTERNOON. I've lived in the city for 30 years and never have I worried about crime--until the past year.

    The criminals have no fear whatsover of the police or being caught because there is no punishment or deterrent in Crook County. And there's no end in sight. This city has really gone to hell.

    I think it's time to move.

    1. I gave North Center/Lincoln Square/East Ravenswood (OMG the arguments over where I lived had me rolling my eyes) Chicago's one last chance. I moved out of state within 4 months. Bless you all!

  3. Isn't it about time the COPS started working undercover to lure some of these punks into trying to rob them?? Seems to me this is a small group of thugs continuing to get away with the same type of robberies. Time for a sting operation if you ask me!

    1. Undercover? They don't have enough officers to cover the beat cars. Every day/night 4 - 5 cars sit in the parking lot because there is no one to take them out.

  4. Looks like even Rahm's personal squad has been cuckoled into not doing their jobs. Sad!

  5. Theft in front of Rahms house? Why not a robbery? Occuring on a public way means it's technically an aggravated robbery.

    1. It was an "isolated" incident and crime is down . . . . . LOL

  6. Hey Rahm -
    Your record is a damn disaster. Just a shitstorm.
    By any metric, from any vantage point, you've just really f'd it all.
    Congrats.
    And now the same cesspool that the rest of us experience every day, the same one you and your sycophants lie about all the time, well it lands on your block.
    Good! Terrific!
    Maybe it's the story that keeps you from inflicting your brand of non-achievement on the rest of the nation.

    1. This is exactly what Rahm and his ilk want. And it's just the beginning. Welcome to the Brave New World, comrade.

  7. Was it Junior's drug dealer back to visit?

    Anyone else think the fiddle is playing while Chicago burns?

  8. And Pawar "trusted" that Rahm knew what he was doing with the merger and doesn't do squat to increase manpower. They live in their bubble.

    1. I just wrote an email to Pawar about his lying about the merger and increased crime and what he plans to do about it (I live in the 47th). I hope everyone does the same and starts bitching loudly to those representing us. Don't know what it'll do, but it's better than doing nothing.

    2. Pawar doesn't care about his constituents. He has said publicly he will not run again for alderman. He has hinted on Twitter he might have his eyes on another political job. I will never vote for that lying SOB again.

      Delete
    3. Oh I'm sure Pawar is all over it:

  9. This blog's readers will complain about the alderman or the mayor's police detail - but that's not the issue in America. There's a new entitlement feeling spreading in some circles - that screams we are headed the way of Brazil. I live in Tokyo and make about 400K a year - so I don't miss Chicago one iota but my kid misses watching the Cubbies play.

    1. That adds nothing to this conversation. But congrats on your well paying job that nobody asked about.

    2. "I'm a douchebag who makes a lot of money and I feel the need to say something" is all I got out of your post

    3. It adds quite a bit, tbh.

      I sold in 2016 and haven't looked back.

      PRO-TIP: Keep calling it "gun violence" and you'll lose everything.

    4. The guy has a point. Even if there were guns in Japan -- the murder rate would be LOW compared to America. You can't blame guns or the number of police for crime. Crime is about certain people making specific decisions each and every day that impinges on honest, hardworking persons' freedom.

  10. There couldn't be a more graphic example of the shambles, the catastrophic mess the city, CPD and our safety and lives are in. Can The Smug Little Prince even muster a speck of embarrassment, any humiliation, shock, drastic change in his failed police policies NOW .. at all?

  12. Rahm could care less about all this.

    When his term is up, he will be appointed Ambassador to Israel.

    1. So...How many think Rahmy-Boy will run for re-election or take on a post somewhere else???

  13. These are the same officers who let a hit and run pass them 2 weeks ago. The driver was coming up Hermitage the WRONG way on a ONE way and many cars were damaged,7 total, one was totaled. The driver passed the two officers in the alley after they proceeded to go down another one way street the wrong way taking them right past the parked police car. No one was hurt but this needs to end. We have still not heard back from the officers..assuming there covering up what happened. The officer who helped the the victims of the cars were told the officers were most likely sleeping..

    2. No, I would just tell the truth: we have a no chase policy. All that is is a reckless driver. I'd call the color make and model and a plate/partial plate and say "I am not chasing, emergency equipment extinguished, vehicle last seen traveling" and give direction. You do realize those officers would be suspended, possibly fired and definitely sued if they popped their lights on and chased that car and the vehicle hit someone, right? Also, they would be violating departmental orders. I doubt they were asleep. They're just not total morons chasing their own demise.
