3 More (Yes, MORE) Robberies In Boystown; October Pace Among Worst In 15 Years

Police said that at least three more people reported being robbed in Boystown yesterday and early this morning, bringing the total number of street muggings this weekend to at least six.

With two weeks remaining in October, Wrigleyville and Boystown have already scored more robbery reports than the entire month of October 2015.

Two victims were robbed during daylight hours yesterday.

Inter-American Magnet School
- Two men dressed as women beat up and robbed a victim of an Android phone outside Inter-American Magnet School, 851 West Waveland, at 3:20 p.m.

One offender is Hispanic, 5'8" tall, heavy-set, and has blue and beige hair. He wore a red dress with a black jacket.

The other offender is black, 6'1" tall, skinny, and has red hair. He wore a see-through black dress and a black cap.

- Shortly before 7 p.m., a man who lives in the 800 block of West Roscoe told police that he escaped from an offender who threatened him with a large knife during a robbery attempt nearby.

He described the offender as a 140-pound, 5'9"-tall Hispanic man with short hair. The offender wore a black shirt with black jeans.

The victim, who was not injured, declined to file a police report.

- Patrol officers summoned paramedics for a robbery victim that they found in the 700 block of West Belmont just before 3 o'clock this morning.

An ambulance crew transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment.

No offender description is available.


Bad Weekend

CWBChicago previously reported details of Boystown attacks this weekend in the 3400 block of North Halsted; the 3300 block of North Halsted; and the 3300 block of North Broadway. Another robbery occurred in the 2900 block of North Broadway, just outside of the immediate neighborhood.


Bad Month

With 17 robberies confirmed in Wrigleyville and Boystown already, October is on track to record the most muggings of any month since August 2013.

It has already tied or exceeded full-month robbery totals for nine of the last 15 Octobers.

  3. You can't tell me that 2 guys dressed like girls who robbed someone at the school on Waveland right behind Center on Halsted don't hang out at Center on Halsted.

    1. And what's worse, COH doesn't care...

    2. Rather than help these confused, angry youth find their place in society and become happy productive individuals, the progs who run COH and other tax payer-funded organizations encourage that they act out in the name of "diversity" and "social justice." I've talked with the people who run these places--they believe helping these troubled kids adjust to society favors "white culture." What a colossal waste of resources and money. It's absolutely criminal what they are doing to these kids and the neighborhood. I only hope residents realize the horror taking place outside their doorsteps before November 8.

  4. Can you imagine what would happen to a guy who threatens me with a knife on Roscoe at 3PM? He'd be dead. One less Chicago scumbag. Roscoe is three blocks from where our family lives in a multi-million dollar home.

    4. Your outrageous property taxes is helping pay for COH.

    5. How unfortunate that someone would even consider robbing a person who lives in a multi-million dollar home. That's HORRIFIC, really. Only the poor renters should be robbed. If I were you, I would write a letter to the POTUS requesting robberies of only people with incomes of less than $50K annually.

    3. Too bad you guys won't edit some of these homophobic comments... It really takes away from your credibility. The neighborhood is less than 15% LGBT so his reason for winning certainly isn't that community alone.

    4. Can a gay guy be homophobic? Or maybe just honest?

    5. Boystown is less than 15% gay??? No wonder I can't get lucky lately.

  8. now those 2 the police need to circle the block patrol and pick the 2 criminals up in front of the Center On Halsted

    ReplyDelete
  9. The signs outside the center on halsted articulate their no loitering policy, which is in place (paraphrasing the signs) to promote respect and create a better community. those are two things the coh and their "youth" seem to care nothing at all about. it's really time for that place to screen and control applicants, or move elsewhere. i'm happy to be NIMBY when it comes to armed criminals.

  11. How much support is given the COH with respect to WholeFoods? Would a boycott of it impact the Center and have COH start to concern itself with the good of the neighborhood while performing it's services to those in need of those services?

    2. I have called on those two guys before and I was thinking it was them again and for some reason police while they would stop a crime the department will not follow up and police in front of the Center On Halsted looking for the criminals.

    3. They caught one and she was already released the second one got away
      The victim that was " robbed " was a crib kid

  13. I don't know. The totals per year have been bad all awhile, yet I only felt unsafe from 2012 and on. Most of us felt it was a very safe area until a round 2011.

  14. Biggest mistake was letting that Centerto be built there. I avoid that Whole Foods because of it. The same thing will happen with the repurposing of the homes on Clybourn and Diversey.

    1. I believe the "Center" has some agreement with Hole Foods to give their criminals free food, that way the criminals stay in the neighborhood day and night and rob the citizens

  15. There was a group of about six people, two matching the suspect descriptions, sitting on the steps of Temple Sholom Monday afternoon.

    These 2 burnt down a building and I see them in front of the Center On Halsted ALL THE TIME. Heavy set Hispanic who dies his fuzzy short hair many different colors and a very skinny black male who wears many different colors of long straight hair wigs both wearing women's clothing at times. They to me match the two criminals who were robbed in the article below.

    2 drag queens robbed some people and they are a 1/2 block from the Center On Halsted. I bet if you start patrolling in front you may find the criminals out front at breakfast and around dinner. The police job is not only to run back and forth from crime to crime its also to do detective work and I bet more than half of these transsexual criminals hang out front of the Center On Halsted. Please do your jobs and patrol the Center front door and investigate these criminals.

    1. When I lived next door cops were there EVERY DAY!

      Why not organize protests with signs showing the ignored crimes and get the media on it.

      Place is a scam,shut it down.

  18. COH and the Crib get such a bad wrap
    I think a lot of you are very unaware at the fact that there are 4 other resources/ Drop In centers in Lakeview .
    Some better than others
    95% of these kids are homeless
    And 95% of these resources are helping them and getting them off the street and into school

    1. They've earned their reputations through dishonesty and the rude treatment they fork out to their neighbors. And, no, 95% of the "kids" are not homeless. A good 80% aren't even kids.

      Delete
    2. Those "kids" deserve to be homeless based upon their behavior. They are criminals. Who the hell would want one of them in their home? If you think they deserve better treatment, why don't you have a few of them living in your house?

      Delete
    3. If they're "homeless", then why are they always jumping on the Red Line towards 95th street? They've got someplace to go, obviously. HOME is my guess.
