9-Person Mob Robs Lincoln Park 7-Eleven; Muggings Reported In Boystown, Lincoln Square

A late summer robbery surge seems to be continuing in Lakeview and nearby areas.

Here are the latest incidents:

• Three offenders beat and robbed a man near the Western Brown Line station early Saturday.

The victim told police that three white men attacked him around 2:30 a.m. and took $90 cash from his pocket. One offender was about 5’11” tall, another wore a blue hoodie, and no further information was available about the third man.

This 7-Eleven at 2757 North Pine Grove was robbed Friday morning, police said. | Google
• A nine-person mob robbed a 7-Eleven store and its clerk around 3:30 on Friday morning at Diversey and Pine Grove, police said.

The offenders entered the store together, took the clerk’s wallet and armloads of merchandise, then fled eastbound on Diversey toward Lincoln Park. Four black females and five black males, all described as “young,” were involved, the victim said.

• A man told police that he cornered at Halsted and Cornelia, punched, and ordered to hand over his valuables by two men around 2 a.m. Friday in Boystown.

He said the first offender was black, stood about 5’7” tall, and had dreadlocks. The other was black, about 5’9” tall, and wore a baseball cap.

  1. The police be like....OK, thanks for letting us know that YOU'RE now aware of the situation.

  2. I don't understand why people aren't filing police reports. Are they scared of retaliation from the criminals?

    1. Since most are out in a few days, possibly.

  3. Why are these idiots even calling 911 if they're not going to bother filing a report? Making the cops aware means nothing if they're not going to file reports, since their searches are based largely on crime reports!

    1. They are reporting a crime and choosing. It to prosecute it. Suspect investigation might be based on police reports but increased surveillance is based on civilian reports.

  4. Perhaps because their wallets were stolen, containing their addresses... and we all know that even if the criminals are caught they'll be back on the street in no time?

  6. When I owned my bars I always. Arrived a gun. Why can't these owners of these businesses do the same and use it?

  7. Maybe the first question cops should ask is, are you going to file a report? No? OK, see ya.

  8. Pusillanimous cowards don't understand that allowing criminals to get away and attack other people and endangering their lives and property too.

  9. I was told by someone who was robbed and actually filed a report (not saying it's true, but I believe him) that the police overstated how long it would take to file the report and told him it probably wouldn't do any good. In general, the officers seemed ticked off that they had to take a report. If they can convince a victim not to file a report, then it's one less crime on the statistic records.
