PRIDE: Man Beaten, Robbed By Offender Who Wore Rainbow Glowstick

It’s so gay in Boystown this weekend, even the robbery offenders are wearing rainbows. Literally.

Police say a man was punched in the face, beaten, and robbed at Roscoe and Clark this morning by two offenders—including one who was wearing a rainbow glow stick.

The man was found “all bloodied up” at 3335 North Clark after losing $10 to the glittery gangsters just before 3 a.m. An ambulance crew treated him for his injuries.

Both offenders were described as black men in dark clothing. One is in his late teens, heavy-set, and about 5’6” tall. He was carrying a rainbow glow stick. The other man is thinner.

Lincoln Park Bump ’n’ Run

There’s another bump ’n’ run car theft to tell you about. This one played out at Clark and LaSalle late Thursday.

A woman was rear-ended as she neared the intersection around 10 p.m., police said.  When she got out of her 2015 Infinity to check the damage, a man jumped from the other car, got into hers, and drove away.

The man who took her car is described as a short black man who was wearing a red hoodie.

He emerged from a silver Chrysler 300 that was driven by a heavy-set black man with dreadlocks.

Both cars were last seen heading toward Lake Shore Drive on LaSalle.
