Man Mugged While Smoking In Lakeview Yard Overnight; Second Robbery Reported Nearby

A Lakeview man who stepped into his backyard for a "smoke" was robbed by four men overnight, police said.

The victim told police that he was in his yard in the 3200 block of N. Clifton around 3:00AM when four or five men robbed him. He said he was "choked out" by one offender while three others took his keys, cellphone, and wallet.

Neighbors reported hearing the man scream for help.

All four offenders were last seen running toward Belmont in the east alley of Clifton, the victim said.

He described the offenders as black men between 22 and 30-years-old. One was about 6-feet tall with facial hair and a gray long-sleeve shirt. Another was about 5'8" tall and wore a blue Cubs jacket with white and red wristbands.

Second Lakeview Robbery

Details of a second Lakeview robbery from last night are slim. Police said the victim was near School and Lakewood around 8:40PM when they were attacked and robbed of their wallet and cash.

The offender is described as a black man in his early 20's who stands about 6'1" tall and weighs about 150 pounds.

  2. Can't even go out in your own yard with out getting robed. the neighborhood is full of loitering criminals that do NOT live down here.

  3. If only stop and frisk was legal. We'd have so many of these loitering punks off of our streets. Cops would be finding guns and warrants for days amongst the loiterers along Belmont and on Halsted.

    1. 100% correct. Blame the media, divisive politicians & phony activists.

  4. Crazy no one living in the neighborhood are those doing the robbing who would have thought. As the commenters about have said, if these anti-loitering laws would be brought back a lot of this would stop. At least station a cop at belmont and fullerton to catch these people

    1. Anti-loitering, stop and frisk and curfew.

    2. If loitering laws were re-enacted, would that mean "positive loitering" would be illegal?

  5. Pathetic, can't even go out on ones own property and suck off a cigarette without having to worry about being thugged. Thanks, Rahm. Thanks, Tunney.

  6. I was talking to a couple from Chile last night - all of us former residents of Lakeview/Lincoln Park - and they said that Santiago has gone the way of Chicago as well. Not safe at all to walk at night.

    1. I was talking to a guy from Vermont who said the same thing about his state. He said something about the Bernie socialists giving free ride to every Bronx gang member who could make it up to the Green Mountain state.
