Six Years After Mugging A Victim In Boystown, He's Back In The 'Hood And Up To His Old Tricks, Prosecutors Say

He went to prison for robbing a victim near Cornelia and Halsted in Boystown in 2012. Now he’s outta jail, off of parole, and back in our great neighborhood.

And, according to new allegations, he’s up to his old tricks.

Let's give a warm "Welcome Back" to Keith Sandifer.

Sandifer’s parole for that 2012 mugging in the 700 block of West Cornelia ended in February. Early Sunday morning, he found himself about a block away from the robbery scene—at Replay, a popular video arcade bar at 3439 North Halsted.

According to witnesses, Sandifer took a woman’s purse from inside the bar and walked out around 12:51 a.m. on Sunday. Security managed to grab Sandifer and held him for police.

The Hyde Park resident is charged with theft.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Keith and give him a big "how-do-ya-do" when you see him around. He'll surely appreciate the attention.

  1. Aww. We should have a big block party for all the ex cons let out early! Maybe we can hold the party on Rahm's block. Preckwinkle can serve sugar free drinks. Dart can bring pizza. Foxx can make sure that no one is doing the poor felons wrong. Good times. Good times....

    2. His picture should be posted all over in every bar and every light pole.

  3. As someone who lived on Cornelia for 10 years -- I say - it's not a great neighborhood. The restaurants are pretty crap, the bars full of 'bros', and the crime is out of control.

  4. How fucking BRAZEN to go to prison and then return to the SAME neighborhood where he was conducting his shenanigans. Does he have a home address listed? I'm betting it isn't anywhere close to Halsted/Cornelia.

    1. The article says he is a Hyde Park resident at the very end.

  5. At what point do we stop giving chances to career criminals and keep them locked away from honest citizens? 3 strikes and you out sound like a plan.

  6. The "social service" agencies all want him to spend his time in Lakeview. They will even let him use their address as his home address because that's how they cash in.
