A rideshare driver was robbed at gunpoint while making a pick-up in Logan Square this morning, Chicago police said. Moments later, someone fired shots from a stolen car used in the robbery as it left the area.
While the arrest of a four-person robbery crew this week is a step in the right direction, Chicago police have more work to do if they want to put an end to the relentless wave of holdup sprees that have been plaguing many areas of the city.
In a move rarely seen in the modern Chicago Police Department, a CPD supervisor gave patrol officers permission to engage a carload of suspected robbers in a vehicle pursuit on Tuesday afternoon. And the cops caught them.
