Lincoln Park: Two Convenience Stores Robbed In One Hour

This store at 2710 North Lincoln was robbed around 10:20 p.m. on Thursday, police said. | Google
A gunman remains on the loose after robbing two Lincoln Park convenience stores in about an hour Thursday night. The offender’s description closely matches that of a man who robbed a third convenience store and a late night taco stand in Lincoln Park over the past two weeks.

Around 10:20 last night, an armed man walked into the 7-Eleven at 2710 North Lincoln and announced a robbery. He was last seen running westbound on Schubert, police said.

Then, around 11:20 p.m., a similar-looking man armed with a gun robbed the 7-Eleven at 2264 North Clark Street.

In both cases, the gunman was described as black, about 5’10” tall, with a goatee. He wore a black hoodie and dark jeans.

On Saturday, detectives issued a community alert after an armed gunman robbed a Halsted Street taco shop and a 7-Eleven at 2600 North Lincoln over the course of two weeks. Authorities have not yet connected last night’s hold-ups to the man in the alert.

The alert describes the suspect as a black man between 28- and 39-years-old who stands 5’4” to 5’9” tall and weighs 180-210 pounds. He has a black beard and has been seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with black pants and a black jacket with white lettering on the front and back.

  1. So when the Bozos's at city hall tell you crime is down, what they mean is arrests are down. 50,000 fewer arrests in 2017 than in 2014 year to date. Therefore there convoluted logic says fewer arrests indicates fewer crimes being committed. We all know that is far from the case, in fact crime is up across the board. If Chicago politicians lips are moving he or she is lying to you. They do it because the sheepl must believe them because they keep reelecting them. Wake up people!

    1. The business community isn't yelling loud enough. The urban community, ordinary citizens are crying out, but the business community is what matters. Once they give Rahm an earful - once tourism declines and Mag mile revenues decline -- then you'll hear the mighty yell from the business community. We, the little people, don't matter to City Hall as far as crime is concerned.

  2. With the demise of DNA Info, I hope this site gets an uptick of commenters.

    1. That's the best news I've heard all day. It was a hippie propaganda rag designed to line Rickett's pockets with more money. Good riddance.

  3. We have such an insignificant police presence that a guy is able to rob two separate places the same night in the same neighborhood and go home for the night. but as our police chief said we have a "perception problem" and we are "doing good"

    2. Our City detectives, according to the Better Government Association, only solves 5% of the crimes, compared to NYC detectives who solve 50% of the crimes. I suggest we import the NYC detectives to replace ours.

  4. we need to site to expand to include the entire city. Dna is gone, and we need CWB to pick-up where they left off or we will be in the dark about crime in Chicago.

    1. DNAInfo is gone because it could not turn a profit. CWB should not follow their business model. I suggest that CWB start charging a monthly fee for access to the news stories. It's about time the hardworking CWB reporters were properly rewarded for their efforts. All you losers with a handout mentality who think news should be free need to step up to the plate and pay for it.

    2. If you depended on DNA for crime info you were still in dark. Very poor reporting.

    3. Here is all you need to know about crime in Chicago. Crime is up across the board in almost all categories. Clearance rate on homicides @ 12% overall clearance rate 30%. No one going to jail and neighborhoods that used to be safe are no longer safe. Keep voting Democratic and it will only get worse. Ball is in your court. One more thing pay attention to all the nice warnings from police about all sorts of crime in your neighborhood, it is the best they can do these days.

  5. People, you are being lied to! Just because caps meetings and newspapers and media and police superintendent are saying less crime, all they mean is less crime is documented. We all know that if victims wait for 3 hour responses from police, if they show up at all, victims just go home and never report it. Its a smart way to pretend less crime exists. Same with arrests, if cops are going from assignment to assignment hours after crime has occurred because the CPD is severly understaffed, there is less chance cops can arrest the bad guys in self initiated activity. You have 90% of police who are not motivated about arresting bad people because of thousand cameras they wear arm chair examining under microscopes their every move and a state attorney Foxx and judges who let all the criminals free or with stupid probation which means nothing. So it is no wonder years of pro-criminal rights and attitude, that crime and murders are getting worse and the powers in news want you to believe you are safer when in fact its a lie. Just ask the people in Starbucks in Uptown last night what if crime is worse or better than a decade ago.

  6. I live by the store on Lincoln and about 10 years ago, you'd be hard pressed to find a time where a cop wasn't at the 7-11 (it was a White Hen back then). It was where they stopped on break for free coffee and to use a bathroom. Year after year that dwindled and now you rarely see a cop on duty stopping in.

    It's anecdotal but I have to believe this coincides with the number of officers in the district. I had never heard of that store ever being hit and I believe it's now been robbed a few times over the past 5 years (including one time when they roughed up the clerk).

    Anyways, the city will station an officer across the street from it for a few days to give the appearance they care and then it'll be business as usual with a district that has no cops and criminals who know it.

  7. DNA was a joke. Never gave descriptions and short uninformative recaps. If you read the headline you needn't read story, there was nothing more then a rehash of headline. Reporters got their "stories" from cop radio calls.
