Police said an armed robbery and carjacking crew has struck four times since last Wednesday in River North and the West Loop. And they may have robbed a man at gunpoint of his license plates on Monday.
Patrick Waldon is charged with shooting and robbing a passenger on the CTA Blue Line near UIC-Halsted, police said. Waldon is on parole for an armed robbery that he committed while on parole for yet another robbery.
Chicago police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a pickpocket team that has been working the CTA train system downtown. Meanwhile, a prolific pickpocket who has two theft cases pending has been charged with stealing wallets from two more victims in and near the Loop.
