Gunman robs woman as she walks dog in Lincoln Park, steps from where Dakotah Earley was shot and robbed this spring

Chicago — Shocking video from a Lincoln Park homeowner shows a woman being robbed at gunpoint as she walked her dog in the Lincoln Park neighborhood Wednesday morning. And, in a sickening twist, the robbery crew is also seen splitting up and driving away in two vehicles on the very same street corner where Dakotah Earley was nearly killed in an armed robbery this spring.

In fact, the home security system that recorded both robberies is owned by the same man: Lincoln Park resident David Hussar.

Hussar sent the video to CWBChicago shortly after the 70-year-old woman was confronted by a gunman in the 1300 block of West Webster around 11:20 a.m.

The gunman steps out of a blue SUV and levels a gun at the woman, then at her dog, before grabbing the victim’s purse and returning to the getaway car.

Moments later, another camera owned by Hussar — the exact same camera that recorded the shockingly brutal attack on Dakotah Earley — captured footage of the blue SUV rolling to a stop at the corner of Wayne and Webster.

Two men jump out of the blue SUV that was just involved in the robbery. They dash into an SUV parked along the curb at the exact spot where Earley was robbed. Then, they start the car and drive away. Watch both videos here:

The robbery victim may have been targeted as she walked away from her car, according to information shared on a neighborhood Slack channel. Then, the robbers circled back to steal her SUV after the holdup, a neighborhood group participant said.

However, a Chicago Police Department spokesperson said they did not have any information about a vehicle being stolen from the woman.

Armed holdup crews have run rampant across parts of the city in recent weeks. And, while Chicago police have announced some arrests, these new videos show there is much more work to be done.
