CWB has confirmed details of a robbery that was reported early last Thursday at Belmont and Halsted.
Officers were called to Halsted and Melrose around 2 o’clock that morning to help a woman who said she had been pepper sprayed by a group of people. Other witnesses said the woman had been “beaten up and put out of a car” at the nearby CTA bus turnaround.
In the end, officers concluded, the woman was robbed by a group of five or six people—five black males and one white woman. One of the men claimed to have a handgun. He was described as wearing a red hoodie.
