PLOTTED: Robbery And Purse Snatching Outbreak Mapped

As CWB has reported recently, there has been an outbreak of robberies in the area generally south of Belmont, east of Sheffield, and south in to nearby Lincoln Park.

It appears that the bulk of these incidents appear to be the work of two crews, one of which has most recently targeted women during the morning and evening hours.

The map below plots robberies and one connected purse snatching in the area from Belmont to Webster and Sheffield to the Lake since December 1. Icons may be clicked for date, time, and additional data.

The two green icons are based on CWB reports that have not yet been “officially” verified by the city.

This map does *not* include incidents that took place outside of the Belmont-Webster-Southport-Lake Michigan area.
