Our hero! Armed robbers give up after woman kicks one in the b*lls

She’s the hero Chicago needs right now: A 41-year-old woman who fought back and kicked a would-be carjacker squarely in his man parts during an armed robbery attempt in Rogers Park on Sunday evening. The woman was not injured, but the offender limped away with his accomplice after apparently deciding to find a softer target.

The woman had just entered her car when two men jumped out of a white SUV and pointed a handgun in her face on the 1200 block of West Columbia around 7:26 p.m., according to CPD spokesperson Ronald Westbrooks.

One of the offenders tried to take her phone. But the woman sat on it before he could grab it, Westbrooks said.

Then, the other guy tried to take her purse. But the strap was around her body and under her arm, so he couldn’t pull it away, Westbrooks said.

That’s when she unleashed a powerful kick directly to one of the goon’s private parts. The attack apparently ended immediately.

Both men returned to the SUV, which sped away eastbound on Columbia, according to Westbrooks. They remain on the loose.

Westbrooks said both of the attackers are Black males who stand 5’2” to 5’4” tall. There’s no description available for the third offender who remained in the SUV during the botched job.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
