The couple was walking around 11 p.m. when the man was struck in the back of the head by an offender who took his wallet and cellphone as well as the woman’s purse. An ambulance was summoned to treat the man’s head injury.

Police later recovered the phone outside of a liquor store in the 3200 block of West Montrose.

According to the couple, the offender was a tall black man with short facial hair. He stood about 6’3” tall, weighs about 240 pounds, and he wore a black knit cap and a black jacket.

Last night’s attack played out about a block from where a Lakeview woman was robbed at gunpoint on Friday evening. Friday’s victim lives about 10 doors down from the couple who was mugged last night, according to a source.

Teens Charged In North Side Robbery Spree

Two teenagers have been charged in connection with a series of armed robberies across the North Side last weekend. None of the incidents connected to the pair were in our area.

The boys, ages 16 and 14, were taken into custody after being identified as the offenders who robbed victims from Streeterville to Rogers Park early on Saturday.

Two women and five men were robbed in separate incidents, police said.

The boys were taken into custody after officers saw them step out of an SUV that was taken in one of the robberies.

The teens are both charged with seven felony counts of armed robbery and one count of attempted armed robbery with a firearm. Their names have not been released because they are juveniles.

One of the robbery victims wrote a letter to 20th District Commander Sean Loughran to thank officers for their efforts.

“I appreciate the job CPD does on both the street and in the station. In this case, the officers…exuded the highest level of professionalism and duty,” the woman wrote.
