Group Of Attackers Beat, Rob Three Men In Separate Uptown Muggings Tonight

Approximate locations of tonight's Uptown attacks. | BatchGeo
Three men were battered and at least two of them robbed in separate attacks in the Uptown neighborhood on Wednesday evening.  The attacks all took place within 15 minutes and are believed to be connected to a single group of four men or teenagers.

The first robbery was reported around 7:30 p.m. by a man who said four black male teenagers battered him on the street near Buena and Clarendon. The offenders then fled eastbound toward Marine Drive.

Moments later, another man was beaten up and robbed in front of his home by four young men in the 700 block of West Bittersweet. The offenders then fled eastbound on Bittersweet.

At 7:45 p.m., a 50-year-old man was beaten to the ground by the same four offenders near Clarendon and Hutchinson. He was not robbed. The attackers fled northbound on Clarendon, police said. The victim was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical center for treatment.

Video surveillance of one attack showed the offenders were all 15-18 years old. Here’s what they were wearing:
1) white hoodie, jeans, white shoes, red backpack.
2) blue hoodie, dark jeans.
3) dark hoodie, blue jeans, white gym shoes.
4) dark sweatshirt, dark jeans

    1. No. This is what has become commonplace in this shit-hole city.

    2. No- this is just a major crime wave that is out of control and is being ignored by your Mayor, and your alderman.

  2. And how many times a week is 1915's beat unmanned by officers. Second attack on Bittersweet in a week (first was a car jacking on the 1st in the Disney School parking lot). Unacceptable.

    1. If you saw them then please do your civic duty and call the police. You may have seen them in an area with a clear camera image. Im sure the victims and John Q. Public would appreciate it.

    1. Not every part of Uptown is unsafe. Please do not generalize. I have lived in Uptown for almost three years and feel safe.

    3. I would not feel safe anywhere in Uptown. I don't even drive through it...I drive around.

    4. Lived in uptown for 9 years. Recently, Buena Park has had some issues. Always around this age group. More than likely trying to join gangs and whatnot. Always be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are.

  6. It's a shame I didn't see them while walking my dog around there; he loves chasing criminals.

  7. Thanks much CWB.
    Is it possible to follow this story a little bit?
    'Beaten up' is a pretty wide range of violence. Any of it is unacceptable. But an indication of how viscous these cowards are would be much appreciated.

  8. Come on guys do your job issue another warning. It makes the citizens feel good, not safe but good. Maybe fat Ed could issue a blanket warning saying entire city is not safe.

  9. Keep your bag of dog poop open and give attacker’s a little taste!

  10. This site deserves a Pulitzer Prize. Thank you CWB for saving lives by keeping us informed. I don't know how you do it do promptly and accurately, but keep up the good work.

  11. Wow! Crime in Uptown in worse than crime in Englewood.
    Get your concealed carry licenses.

  12. Take note wgn, abc7, cbs2, cbs5, and fox32. Your top story all day yesterday was Obama serving jury duty and what he did with his $17 pay. However, CWB, a neighborhood site, was and still is out their doing real journalism.

  13. Thanks Kim Foxx for no longer fully prosecuting juveniles. What do they have to lose? Might as well just go terrorize people. There will be no consequences.

  15. Cant wait to see the movie Death Wish next week in the movie theaters starring Bruce Willis , which seems to make sense whats going on in todays pro-criminal atmosphere, where police can't be depended on anymore, not an insult to them, but they are now handcuffed to do their job like used to be able to. Shame on ACLU and the politicians who allowed it to happen who made their jobs 10 times more difficult and complicated. If it was up to me I would have victims of crime advocates and anyone who filed a simple crime report in Ravenswood, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Uptown, North Center, Roscoe Village, and even Englewood, Hundreds appear in front of King Mayor Rahm Northside home once a week to shed light to this problem. Every damn friggin week until he does something about allowing the police to be the police once again. Do we have anything to lose damnit?

  16. I believe I saw this group of boys on my way home. It was at the intersection of Clarendon and Sunnyside. They seemed suspicious looking to see who was around. I saw a man walking a small dog across the street and tried to look in my rear view mirror but didn't see the direction they went. Just a gut feeling. Now seeing the news I called 311 thinking they can obtain any surveillance footage in the area. Especially since it was outside the park district building. I was told nothing could be done. I should have called yesterday. I said on a gut feeling? I said the least you could do is pass it on to the investigating officers. She refused so I said I would go to the police station and hung up. Ridiculous!

    1. Calling 311 is a waste of time. . . try 911 . . . you won't be arrested for doing so.

  22. Cappelman's on top of this, right? He'll probably blame it on Starbucks.

  23. Easy pickings with most of the police on the South/West sides of the city.
