Lincoln Park Man Charged In Loop Mugging


Nearly a year after a woman lost her necklace and phone to a robber in the Loop, a Lincoln Park man has been arrested and charged in the case.

Police said a 32-year-old woman was robbed outside of a fast food restaurant in the 1100 block of South Wabash late on February 17, 2017. A man yanked a necklace from her neck and wrestled away her phone.

Now, 33-year-old Bobby Wayne McDaniel of the 600 block of West Diversey is charged with the crime.

Cops arrested McDaniel at his home last Tuesday after the victim picked him out of a photo line-up, prosecutors said. He’s charged with one felony count of robbery.

Judge Mary Marubio ordered McDaniel held on a $20,000 deposit bond and stipulated that electronic monitoring will be required if he makes bail.
