A Lakeview woman was robbed at gunpoint near Racine and School early this morning.
The woman told police that the offender approached her on the street near her home around 12:05 a.m. and demanded her valuables while displaying a black handgun.
The man—who is a whopping $20 richer for the woman’s trouble—then fled northbound.
He’s described as a 5’6”-tall black man with facial stubble who weighs about 140 pounds. He was wearing a black bucket hat and a black sweatshirt.
A Better Start
Wrigleyville and Boystown recorded 25 robberies through the first three months of 2017, according to Chicago Police Department data.
That’s down from 40 incidents during the same period last year, but it’s up from sixteen cases in 2015 and twenty in 2014.
