Lakeview: Women Robbed By Crew In Stolen Minivan Friday

Three-man robbery crew in an old brown or gold minivan robbed at least two women in Lakeview on Friday afternoon. No one is in custody.

Just before 3 p.m., a Lakeview mom who was walking to pick up her kids from Hamilton School was jumped from behind by a man who grabbed her phone. The man then returned to the van in an alley behind the 1500 block of West Cornelia. Police determined that the van is a 2009 Honda with Illinois license plate H855843. The vehicle was reported stolen earlier on Friday by the Safe Haven Ministries, a source said.

The offender who took the woman’s phone is described as a thin black man who stands about 5’8” tall and wore a gray hoodie with baggy jeans. The van was last seen heading east on Addison toward Lake Shore Drive.

Police said the van had been idling in the alley between Ashland and Bosworth before the incident.

About an hour earlier, another woman was robbed of her purse in the 800 block of West Aldine by a man who jumped out of a brown or gold van, two witnesses said. Once again, the offender was described as a black male in a gray hoodie. The van was last ween heading southbound toward Belmont.

  1. The van will be abandoned if it isn’t already and they’ll be at it again in a few days. Wash, rinse, repeat. Thanks Rahm, Eddie, Kim and the rest of you fools.

  2. 2PM, 3PM all in broad daylight.... No time of day is sacred...you are no longer safe...not safe to walk your dog...not safe to take your kids to the park...not safe to get your car from your garage...not safe to take out the garbage...not safe to sit in your yard...not safe to leave home...not safe to walk home, especially alone...but even with another not safe....Lakeview/ Wrigleyville not safe.....when the value of your real estate falls then maybe you will finally take action... we must unite, organize, and take action because no one is doing anything! Have you heard a word from our Mayor about making our streets safe again? What are we being taxed to death for? If they can't get enough police on our streets to catch these bastards, my days as a Chicagoan are numbered....

    1. More taxes. Less services. Democrats have run our city, county and state into the ground. And yet they keep getting re-elected, so why should they do anything different?

    2. They don't go after people with dogs. So get a Concealed Carry or a big mean dog. Then we will be fine.

  3. Since police policy which forbids chasing stolen cars you will see this much more ! This laws in this state and city encourage robberies And all forms of lawlessness. Continue to handcuff police,,,,, it is a free for all for criminals to do whatever they want. People who live in this city perplexes me This city is a pro criminal haven with no consequences

  5. So what's the next victim blaming suggestion, dont carry a purse at 2 p.m.?...I AM hoping people are waking up to the fact that nobody cares that the area is under constant attact and you had better be prepared to defend yourself -or move ideally.

  6. 2pm and 3pm mid-day robberies. How Very brazzen of these thugs. Means I wouldn't have gotten a chance to use my new trijicon hd night sights....notice how for the most part these f'kin COWARDS only go after the elderly and women who are alone. Easy pickings huh?? You guys must be proud of your badass selves!! What a bunch of sissies!! Too scared to go after an actual challenge huh??? Back in the day, real OG'S would of beat your ass for robbing old people and women. There used to be rules even within criminal circles. Never touch elderly, women or children. Nowadays I guess everyone is fair game. SMH.

  8. Sounds like some of the natives are getting restless. How will you vote next election? Oh, I know your alderman will come around and tell you he trying to get more police to protect you, but the real question is will you believe him or call him out on all the stupid things they have been doing. Ask him if he vote the way Rahm wants him to. Ask you the last time he voted against Rahm's wishes. Ask him to put in writing his stance on crime, courts and job Sherri is doing. Demand reps from all media attend local CAPS meetings. Put him on notice you will be voting for anyone that promises to be hard on crime. After he promises to clean up his act vote for anyone but him or her because they are lying to you. Will promise and tell you anything to get reelected.

  10. Its your fault. Walking around the neighborhood in broad daylight is very hazardous to your health. Hire an armed guard or better yet have alderman supply each block with a block protector. They city seems to have money for everything else why not block protectors.
