The Wisconsin woman charged with posing as an Uber driver to rob a Lincoln Park man at gunpoint early last Saturday pulled the same ruse to mug a man in River North just an hour earlier, prosecutors say.

Nytina Raymond allegedly picked up her first victim at an Italian restaurant in the 200 block of West Grand around 11:30 p.m. on November 10. She then punched the victim in the face and robbed him of $100, his phone, and credit cards, according to charges

About 50 minutes later, Raymond and some juveniles picked up their second victim at Old Town Pour House, 1419 North Wells around 12:20 a.m. While driving toward the man’s Lincoln Park home, one of the juveniles pulled out a gun and demanded the victim’s phone and wallet, according to authorities. The crew forced the man to reveal his PIN number before releasing him, police said.

Police arrested Raymond and the juveniles around 2 a.m. at a Walmart in Niles. Cops say they found a pile of evidence: a stack of $20 bills totalling $1,240; $230 in miscellaneous cash; $698 in Walmart purchases; three cell phones; five credit cards; a pile of lottery tickets; and a 7.5-inch knife in the center console.

Raymond is being held without bail.

  1. People, we need to start paying attention to what’s going on here. It’s going to continue until WE stop this several year crime wave!!!!!
    The cops hands are tied any this mayor is an apathetic ass wipe!

    1. I think Rahm is far from an apathetic ass wipe. He cares. He cares a lot .... about photo ops, about keeping the Daley machine as well-organized and well-funded as possible, and about the glorification of Rahm.
      Caring about actual tax-paying citizens. Well, that's just not important.

  2. The gift to Chicago that keeps on giving! Thanks Wisconsin. Take your loosers back.

  3. Any vehicle description? Make, model, approx year, color?

  4. To think this is a leader of a dance team for young kids. I pray wasn't none of those kids in attendance to this dumb actions.
