Wrigleyville: Overnight Robbery Has 4 Facing Charges

Four men are facing robbery charges this morning after a man was mugged in Wrigleyville early Wednesday.

The victim and a friend were near Sluggers bar when a group of men—possibly local drug dealers— took the man’s wallet and then fled to the Addison Red Line station around 1:30 a.m.

Cops were quick to get to the L stop, and all four were arrested on the platform seconds before their train was to depart.

All four offenders were identified by the victim and officers recovered the victim’s property from a trash can on the train platform, police said.

CWB Chicago will have more information about the accused after charges have been finalized and filed.

  5. The CTA Blue Line is the getaway car of choice, especially with the youngsters. Crimes occur within bolting distance from River Road all the way to Chicago Ave.

    1. Red Line around Belmont is the same way (that's why some call it Hellmont)

  6. Great work by the cops. Too bad even if convicted, these criminals will be back on Wrigleyville's streets by the end of the year.

    1. Reminds me of that summer when MY catalytic converter was stolen from MY car and then was officially classified as theft of "mislaid property." WTF???
