Group of teens robs Uber Eats deliveryman

A group of teenagers robbed an Uber Eats deliveryman of his bicycle in the Streeterville neighborhood on Monday night, according to police and a witness.

The 53-year-old man left his bicycle unlocked while he stepped into a restaurant on the 200 block of East Ohio around 6:50 p.m., according to a police spokesperson. A group of between 15 and 20 people was standing outside the business when he came back outside, police said, and one man was stealing the victim’s bicycle.

Police said another member of the group tripped the victim from behind when he unsuccessfully tried to get his bicycle back. The victim said members of the group kicked him while he was on the ground.

Officers gave the victim a ride home.
