This morning's first robbery took place in the 2400 block of North Stockton, police said. | Google
A bike-riding gunman robbed people this morning in Lakeview and Lincoln Park, police said. No one is in custody.

Shortly before 6 a.m., the robber pedaled up to a man in the 2400 block of North Stockton in Lincoln Park, pulled out a gun, and demanded the victim's wallet and phone. The robber was last seen biking southbound toward Fullerton. The mugging is the eighth to be reported near Diversey Harbor since late June.

The second victim was robbed here, at Mildred and Oakdale, just south of Illinois Masonic Medical Center
A few minutes later, a woman was robbed by the same man near Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The woman was in the 2900 block of North Mildred around 6 a.m. when the offender approached on a bike, pulled out a handgun, and announced a robbery. He fled eastbound on Oakdale after the hold-up.

Both victims provided similar descriptions of the offender: A black man in his early 20’s with cornrows who rode a white bicycle. He stands about 5’7” tall, weighs about 160 pounds, and wore a dark hoodie with the word “PUMA” on the front.

  1. He's probably out on electronic monitoring.

  2. I am the second victim. He approached me on a bike, pulled out a gun, and demanded what was in my hands (cell phone and ventra card). The first victim and I are both incredibly lucky to have made it out of that unharmed. My cell phone, and likely hers too, was tracked to this address on the south side: 8545 S Sangamon St

    1. Glad you are OK! Thank you for sharing the additional info and giving your first-hand account.

  3. On a bike with how many police stations around and cant be caught in minutes. Truly unbelievable how with today's technology a gun wielding criminal cant be apprehended by our law enforcement. No excuses, this is a constant now on the North Side and we are being picked-off and laughed at by these petty thugs. What the hell do we pay taxes for? Rahm Emmanuel is the biggest joke of a mayor, please vote this pos out asap!
