POTPOURRI: Robbery, Burglary, Knifing In Area Overnight

An active early Saturday morning has left at least one person robbed in Lake View, a 19-year-old knifed in nearby Lincoln Park, and a Wrigleyville resident awakened by two burglars in his apartment.

Lake View Robbery

A man reported being targeted by two strong-arm robbery offenders around 4:10 this morning near the intersection of Roscoe and Lakewood, just east of Southport. The victim reported that two offenders made off with his black iPhone 5s and black Kenneth Cole wallet.

The offenders, described only as two black males, were last seen heading southbound on Lakewood in an unknown vehicle.

Wrigleyville Burglary

Two burglars cut through a screen and slipped into a basement apartment in the 3400 block of Seminary around 2:30 this morning. The apartment’s occupant awoke to find two men wearing ski masks making their way out his front door with a 17-inch gray HP laptop.

Lincoln Avenue Knifing

Wrigleyville’s little brother, the bar strip along Lincoln Avenue near Fullerton hosted yet another knife attack this morning.

Police were called to the 2400 block of Lincoln around 1:30 by a man who said his friend had been cut by a knife-wielding man. The 19-year-old victim was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center with a non-life threatening wound.

On March 8, a woman was slashed by a knife-wielding man at virtually the same location.

This morning’s incident has been initially classified as a simple battery in CPD case HX264757
