Police said the offenders are two black men with short dreadlocks who were last seen running southbound on Cambridge. Both were armed with a handgun and at least one of the men was wearing a black hoodie.

Chicago Police Beat #1934, which includes the 500 block of West Surf, has recorded sixteen robberies so far this year. That’s up from nine robberies at the same point last year.

  1. In all of Illinois and all of the USA, the only politicians who are talking about being tough on crime are Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions. I am not a fan of Trump or Sessions, but I want to press our local politicians to be tough on crime and to vote them out if they are not.

  2. Please shut up. Someone was robbed at gunpoint and you want to make it about politics.

    1. Being tough on crime is all about politics. That address is 'Trixie' territory - meaning that some young lady from Michigan or Illinois who just got out of college and whos parents are supporting her was robbed in what should be a very safe area.

    2. Unfortunately, ultimately it is. The staunch political views of most Lakeview residents chased the police away decades ago as they didn't want them in their business and can certainly handle these miscreants on their own...as has been proven, right? Well, when cops are short staffed where do you think they WON'T be?

    3. What would make it about? A candlelight vigil?

    4. But it is about politics. Gangs have been terrorizing our neighborhood and we can't even get politicians to give us more cops or longer jail sentences to keep them away. Could do without the Trump stuff - but sadly it's true.

    5. Really? You think there is no connection between our political leaders and our criminal justice system? Really?

    6. This is ALL about politics. Lib Democrats like Rahm, Prickwinkle, and Foxx have intentionally created this environment favorable to criminals.

  3. Totally about politics. We need our elected leaders to be doing what they can to prevent people from being robbed. You might think a cop fairy cones by every so often with new officers but doesn't work that way.

  4. Urban politicians don't talk about crime for the same reasons they don't talk bout 50% high school drop out rates--it's all part of their larger plan.

  5. It is politics, politics that set free criminals that should be in prison to pander to there communitys for votes.

  6. Everything is politics. Never forget that.

  7. You can sympathize with the woman and the situation, but ultimately something still has to be done, so unfortunately, this does relate to politics

  8. Just a hunch, but I have a feeling that "Lakeview Resident" is Tom Tunney or one of his minions.

  9. It's about Democrats becoming so far left and anti-American they support anything and anyone that disrupts the country and brings bloodshed. It's a complete truth. Just ask them. They don't shy away from answering how they really feel. They don't even need Merlot to do so. I've been to Lakeview parties where the trust fund brats and gays and white girls literally raise their glasses and toast to America's destruction. You can't put that sort of thing into a novel--no one would believe it.
