THE MUGGINGS CONTINUE: Cool Weather Has Little Effect As 2 More Report Being Robbed This Weekend

A Boystown man reported being robbed at knifepoint near Belmont and Broadway around 2:30 Sunday morning. No suspects are in custody.

The victim told police that two black men approached him, produced a knife, and took his ATM card. One offender was heavy set. The other wore a hat and had a “normal build.”

Another victim told police that he was robbed around 2:20AM on Saturday in the 1100 block of W Addison—about a block from Wrigley Field.

That victim told police that two black men physically assaulted him and took his iPhone, wallet, and debit card.

One of his attackers stood about 5-feet, 6-inches tall and wore a red shirt with khaki shorts.

The other was about 5-feet, 8-inches tall and he wore a black shirt with camouflage shorts or pants.

About 30 minutes before the man was robbed on Addison, a passer-by reported that a robbery victim approached him for help near Waveland and Seminary, adjacent to Wrigley Field. The caller was able to pursue two offenders for a short distance before losing them. Both offenders were described only as black men.

Police were unable to find the victim and no report was immediately filed.
