SNOOKERED: Tourist Robbed In Lincoln Park

An international traveler who is staying at a Lincoln Park youth hostel received a traditional Chicago greeting this morning: He was beat up and robbed.

The UK citizen flagged down an officer near Clark and Fullerton at 6:40 this morning to report the crime, but he could not remember exactly where the robbery took place.

Offender descriptions:

1) Male, black, early 20’s, large afro, 5’7″ tall
2) Male, black, early 20’s, Jheri curls, 5’8″ tall, wearing a black hoodie
3) Female, black, 5’5″ tall, wearing a red hoodie and jean shorts.

Apparently, those three did not get Lincoln Park Alderman Michele Smith’s message about how her neighborhood would “not tolerate these outrageous crimes.”

CPD case number is TBD.
