Milwaukee Women Charged With Lincoln Park Mugging

Prosecutors charged two Milwaukee women with robbing a woman near her Lincoln Park home on October 8.

36-year-old Ellise Franklin and 37-year-old Tamisha Bass knocked the victim to the ground and wrestled away her purse around 5:45 a.m. in the 2600 block of North Lincoln, according to court records.

Cops tracked Franklin and Bass to 1600 block of North Wolcott in West Town where police recovered the victim’s purse, credit cards, identifications, and cell phone, police said.

Cops gave the property back to the victim.

Bass is currently on probation for retail theft, according to Wisconsin state records. Her criminal history includes several shoplifting and fraud convictions, the state said.

    1. Word is spreading that the city of 3 million does have not any cops that give a fuck anymore staying incognito to survive. Stay strong Chicago keep paying those taxes instead of saving up for a moving truck

    2. Chicago's population is now around 2.6 million and falling. The largest exodus is by the black middle class (100,000 people) and the upwardly mobile Latino population, although the Chicago Tribune still refers to whites moving out as "white flight."

  6. After they work through the nuisance of a judge assigning probation, we can look forward to seeing them here in our neighborhood again soon. Welcome to all visitors! Maybe the center on halsted will give them overnight lodging to take the drudgery out of the drive from WI. COH is always happy to help!

  10. I'm wondering if the Crib, COH and other "youth" agencies are not actually bringing these people into Chicago under the realization that the more people they can put on their aid list the more money they get from the government. Anyone know about this?
