Wrigleyville: *Another* Woman Robbed At Gunpoint; Neighborhood's 11th Hold-Up Of The Month

A Wrigleyville woman became our neighborhood's 11th robbery victim of the month this morning when four men took her cellphone and credit cards at gunpoint in the 3700 block of North Wilton.

The victim said the offenders approached her and two of them pulled out handguns near the intersection of Grace and Wilton around 1:45 a.m.

A neighbor who called 911 told us, "I heard a man, or two men yelling, a car horn, and then very scared woman screams."

Police responded quickly, but were not able to capture the offenders, who are described as thin black men in their early 20's. One of them wore a blue hoodie.

Cops said the robbers, who fled in a silver Chevy Malibu or Impala, ditched the woman's cellphone in the 2300 block of North Lake Shore Drive about 15 minutes after the hold-up.

Investigators are trying to determine if the woman was robbed by the same group of thugs who robbed three women at gunpoint in less than 90 minutes early Tuesday morning.
