RUDE: Radio Reporter Robbed

A Chicago radio reporter became the latest Boystown mugging victim Saturday when a woman brandished a weapon and robbed him in a vehicle in the 600 block of Cornelia around 2:05AM. She then fled in the car.

The man’s call sat around for over six minutes before an officer became available to take the assignment. Even then, that officer had to respond from the opposite side of the district at Belmont and Western.

Tired of waiting, the man went on a hunt to find an officer himself. He found one at Halsted and Brompton.

The offender is described as a black woman wearing a black top and blue jeans. CPD case HY262146.
