Boystown Man Robbed While Walking Dog Tonight

A Boystown man was robbed at knifepoint while walking his dog shortly after 5 o’clock this afternoon.

The victim and his dog were walking in the 800 block of West Buckingham’s south alley when a woman armed with a knife approached him and demanded his valuables. After getting about $200 cash, the woman fled northbound in the east alley of Clark Street, the victim said.

He described the woman as a skinny black female who stands about 5’7” tall. She was wearing a white tank top, a black bra, blue jean shorts, and she had dreadlocks.

  1. And this is why I have to walk the dog EVERY night now in my house.

  2. Not trying to blame the victim here at all, but unfortunately because of the illicit behavior of a few miscreants you must learn to change your behavior patterns. Do not walk down alleys unless absolutely necessary, do not carry large sums of cash with you unless absolutely necessary and do not be doing anything you don't need to while you're walking that might distract your attention such as listening to music or talking on your phone. I do have to wonder why someone who is just out walking their dog had $200 in cash on them. I rarely have more that about $40 in cash on me unless I absolutely have to for anything these days.

    1. Many gangbangers will hurt you bad if you don't have at least $100 on you when they mug you because it is a waste of their time. Because you are, in fact, blaming the victim, I hope that happens to you with the lousy $40 in your pocket.

    2. Why even leave your house? Tailor your life to let criminals dictate how you live (FART NOISE).

    3. "I do have to wonder why someone who is just out walking their dog had $200 in cash on them." That's hardly a large sum, it's even the default amount for a withdrawals at some ATMs in Lakeview. Carrying that cash in a leather wallet that cost $200. Besides, the phone you walk around with is worth $800+ these days. Even the sunglasses you're wearing at 5 pm are probably worth $250. What are you thinking walking about in the afternoon with so many valuables. And down an alley? Gee, probably being a good neighbor and dumping the dog poop in his own trash can before going in the back door to his own house.

  5. Does seem like alot of cash to carry while walking the dog. I only carry a single key, only when necessary do I carry cash. I don't carry a phone anymore while walking my dog.

  6. The fact you have to protect yourself and be worried about walking your dog in Boystown at 5pm is a sorry state of affairs.

  8. DISGUSTING!!! I live on this block and walk my dog every single day on this block between 7a and 9p, at least 5 times a day, and it sickens me to the core that my neighbors and I can't do this safely. It's bad enough I'm stuck in my home after 9p because it's unsafe. And it's sucks that unless absolutely necessary, I don't carry my phone on my walks (which itself is unsafe because it prevents me from calling 911). And I hate the concept of having to carry mace on each walk. Is this ever going to stop? I'm so against guns but always envision in my mind shooting a would be robber, and I hate that I can even see myself doing that. I'm sick of this!

    2. Congrats. Sounds like you're becoming a Republican. You'll make the full transition once you realize you don't want to spend the rest of your life held hostage in your own home.

  9. Hey CWB, Remember a few years back when you had the map that showed where the shootings and robberies were in the neighborhood? Can you bring it back? My niece is moving here from Ohio and she needs to understand that her uncle is not being dramatic about the violence here. Thanks!
