Lincoln Square Yoga Studio Robbed, Worker Punched In Face

Bloom Yoga Studio and one of its employees was robbed by two teens yesterday evening, police said | Google
Two juveniles punched a yoga studio employee in the face, stole her wallet, then emptied the business’ cash drawer in Lincoln Square on Wednesday evening. One suspect is in custody.

Police responded to the Bloom Yoga Studio, 4663 North Rockwell around 8:15 last night after the rattled yoga worker called 911.

Two teenagers had entered the studio, punched the woman, taken her personal property, and then emptied the register after using a key to open the drawer, the victim said.

After the robbery, both offenders fled the store eastbound on Leland. They were described as two black male teenagers. One of them wore a red hoodie, and the other wore a gray hoodie.

Cops from the nearby 20th District found one suspect behind the Lawrence Hall School for Boys, 4833 North Francisco. That boy was identified by the victim and has been taken into custody.

The second offender remains on the loose.

  2. We have to start charging juveniles as adults. Lower the age from 18 to 10.

  3. Crime seems to be moving west. Welcome to the world of East Lakeview everyone!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about this. If it was a pair of young men in hoodies, it's entirely possible they were the same scumbags who attacked me Tuesday evening. I hope the woman is okay and is surrounded by the love, support, and concern that I have been enveloped by since my mugging. You're not alone, and I wish you strength and courage in your healing, both physically and emotionally. If you would like to reach out and talk, please feel free to contact the blog owners, and they can put you in touch with me. Sending love and strength to you.

  5. Sometimes I wonder if these criminals work for Rahm and give him a cut of the stolen goods.

  7. All the little pockets of low crime/no crime have gone the way of the dodo. There are no safe neighborhoods left. Punching someone who works at a yoga studio is right up there with punching a religious person in their house of worship -- just goes to show the mentality we're dealing with here. This ship is sinking, folks; best to catch a lifeboat before they're all gone. Let whomever is left fight over the scraps of Shitcago.

    1. Well stated, anonymous. We're all f**ked. The criminals have more rights than law abiding folks thanks to the assholes in charge of this city, so now the inmates are running the asylum. Get out while you can because things will not get any better.

    2. The punishment for these "teen" criminals should be to go to boot camp and go to church everyday and get counseling from a minister. The criminals would have to read the bible OUT LOUD and write papers about the stories they learned from the BIBLE. (Not kidding)

    3. A "minister" is the last thing those punks need. Might as well send them for "restorative justice" at COH.

  8. Nothing will change until criminals are afraid. There needs to be instances of the intended victim fighting, or shooting, back and killing these scumbags. Then, and only then, will criminals hesitate and think twice about committing crimes.

    1. Locking criminals up so they cannot harm the innocent also helps.

  9. I think a lot of the crime in this area, and Lincoln square, is due to the Lawrence Hall school for boys. Nobody wants to say it, or admit it, but I think it's part of the problem. Sorry.

  10. The title is incorrect, that crime took place in Lincoln Square. My reason for having it corrected is for idiots like Gov-wannabe Pawar who two years ago smugly told me that the crime from Lakeview, etc. wasn't going to move up to Lincoln Square because it is a family neighborhood and some other nonsensical reasons.

    1. You are correct! Making the change now. Thank you for pointing that out.

    2. Alderman Pawar is deleting all comments about crime from his Facebook page, and if you suggest that this is why he won't become Governor he will block you. He is a walking piece of shit who does not deserve to be in public office.

    3. "Family neighborhood" comment from Pawar is a load of bull. Yes - families live there, and they have a library, a park, and a music school. Also have tons of bars and restaurants, so lots of people walking around at night completely unaware of their surroundings. Also have a very nice L stop for quick getaways. I used to love LS, took classes at the OTS, etc. Considered moving there a few years ago - then noticed all the gang graffiti, especially closer to Winnemac Park. Sad to see problems there, but it's an old story. Nice area gets gentrified, then gets shops and nightlife, and the criminals perk up and get active.

  11. Tunney does the same on his FB page and blocks you if you question things or post about crime. Bullshit. I like Biss for Gov, though I plan to be moved away from this hellish state by the election, if possible.
