Chicago Police Department Case #HW276360

A woman in her mid-20’s was beaten in an attempted robbery Wednesday night in the 3500 block of N. Pine Grove Avenue. 911 callers from as far as a block away reported that they could hear a woman screaming for help and a man’s voice screaming for her to be quiet.

The attackers were last seen fleeing eastbound on Cornelia Avenue in a dark minivan, possibly a Dodge Caravan, with its right tail light out and a temporary Illinois license plate.

Chicago Fire Department ambulance #80 took the victim to Illinois Masonic Hospital for treatment.

Witness descriptions of the punks:

ATTACKER #1: male, black, with short hair wearing a dark hat and black jacket.

GETAWAY DRIVER: Heavyset, black, with long dreads wearing a white t-shirt. Witnesses are not sure if the driver is male or female.
