Chicago Police Warn Of Strong-Arm Robberies In Lake View

I don’t envy Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. If it’s not one crisis (like public pensions), it’s another, such as violent crime. The last couple of days, the Chicago Police Department has issued a number of community alerts (blogged about here). First, River North. Then, the West Loop. And now, the hopping Lake View (or Lakeview, as it’s often spelled) neighborhood. And leave what’s going on in one of my old stomping grounds to be, well, a little bit different. LeeAnn Shelton reported on the Chicago Sun-Times website last night:

A man in a clown mask is among a group of men robbing victims at gunpoint in the Lake View neighborhood on the North Side, police said.

Three men have approached people on the street and taken their cellphones, money, purses and wallets at gunpoint, according to a community alert from Area North detectives.

Locations of the strong-arm robberies include the 700 block of West Melrose Street and the 3100 block of North Clifton Avenue.

Watch out especially for the clown. It seems Homey struck one victim after they were forced to kneel before the muggers.
