STILL MORE REDDIT TALES: Yet Another Lakeview Victim's Story Goes Online

For the second time today, a citizen appears to be putting the details of a Lakeview robbery story online at Reddit.

The post may refer to the robbery at 4:47AM Sunday morning that we reported on.

My roommate and I just moved to Chicago 10 days ago. Last night as my roommate was walking home from the bar he was jumped by two men. They punched him behind the head and continued to beat him even though my roommate was already knocked out on the floor. The only thing they stole was his phone.


What I find equally disturbing though is that the police explained to my roommate that it was the third like incident this month in the same area, and they seemed to be more concerned about filing a report for the stolen iphone instead of the attack. 

CWB cannot be certain of the Reddit post’s veracity.
