Woman Mugged In Lakeview This Evening

A Lakeview woman was mugged in the 3700 block of North Marshfield this evening. Witnesses reported seeing a woman and a man jump out of a light blue 4-door sedan, wrestle away the victim’s purse, then return to the car, which sped away northbound from Waveland.

The vehicle was occupied by several people, according to the witnesses. The two primary robbers were a black man and a black woman in their 20’s, police said.

• A Lakeview man was robbed at gunpoint as he walked to the Montrose Brown Line station on Saturday morning. The victim was near the station when two offenders approached him, displayed a silver handgun, and announced a robbery around 6:20 a.m.

The men fled southbound, according to the victim, who described them as Hispanic, about 5’7” tall and wearing head coverings.
