6 robberies reported in 3 hours Sunday morning as CPD warns about yet another active crew

CHICAGO — Several robberies reported Sunday morning are under investigation by Chicago police. Holdups were reported in Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, Humboldt Park, the Near North Side, and Logan Square in about three hours. The number of crews responsible for the robberies is not clear.

The crimes began just after 3 a.m. when three or four men armed with guns robbed a victim at Halsted and Fullerton in Lincoln Park.

About two hours later, a woman was robbed at Clark and Addison, across the street from Wrigley Field. She was heading to work at a nearby restaurant when a group of men emerged from a black sedan to rob her at gunpoint.

Then, around 6:15 a.m., two masked men exited a dark sedan to rob another man in the 1100 block of North Wells.

Similar robberies were reported on the Near West Side:

  • A 57-year-old man was robbed by three armed men who exited a sedan to rob him in an alley behind the 1200 block of North Washtenaw at 5:40 a.m., a CPD spokesperson said.
  • Five men armed with firearms exited a white Dodge Charger or Dodge Challenger to rob a victim in the 2600 block of North Harding in Logan Square around 5:45 a.m.
  • Shortly after 6 a.m., two men displayed at least one firearm to rob a man of his wallet and iPad in the 2300 block of North Kedzie. They arrived and escaped in a vehicle, but no other information about the car was available.

Also on Sunday morning, Chicago police released a community alert about another active robbery crew that Area Three detectives are trying to track down. The crew, consisting of two or three men armed with a knife, struck three times Tuesday evening on the Far Northwest Side:

  • in the 2500 block of West Albion around 10:30 p.m.
  • in the 6100 block of North Talman around 11 p.m.
  • in the 2900 block of West Jarvis around 11:25 p.m.

CPD’s alert described the group as Black males wearing dark clothing and ski masks.
