Woman mugged near her Lincoln Park home

A 35-year-old woman was attacked from behind and robbed near her Lincoln Park home on Tuesday evening, police said. No arrests have been made.

She was walking in the alley behind her residence on the 800 block of West Belden when a man struck her in the head and robbed her around 8:28 p.m., according to a CPD report. She was not seriously injured. A neighbor’s surveillance camera system recorded part of the incident.

The offender and an apparent accomplice fled northbound, according to a police spokesperson. They are described as two Black males between 15- and 18-years-old. One wore a black t-shirt with black jeans, and white gym shoes. The other wore a black t-shirt with light-colored pants, and black gym shoes.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
