Hi, everyone. I received this comment from a poster who was nice enough to leave this valuable information for all of us in the community regarding recent incidents of robbery around the Logan Square "L" stop on CTA's Blue Line:
I really appreciate the news coverage you provide for our neighborhood. Since a lot of neighbors read your blog, could you let them know about the recent string of muggings that are occurring near the Logan BL station?
The pattern is that a car pulls into an alley ahead of a (female) pedestrian. Two or three guys get out and loiter ahead of the victim until she catches up. One pulls a knife; if the victim resists, she gets punched or knocked down. There's been at least 4 attacks with the similar descriptions. One victim described the perps as clean-cut Hispanic males. No saying whether the crimes are all by the same crew, but it's likely.
There are two threads in the LS neighborhood group:
Update: This is new information I received about these robberies: "...Two of the victims said that the car was a white sedan in good condition, with a higher back end--probably a sports model of some sort. But, not a particularly flashy type of car. One victim said that the men were so clean cut that she was momentarily disbelieving that it was a robbery...An earlier mugging took place near Milwaukee and Christiana, and the woman there said the car followed her briefly and just pulled to the curb before the perps jumped out and confronted her,".
Of course, if you have any comments, you're invited to leave them. But know this. Comments must be relevant to this topic, and I will certainly not allow any non-sense comments or personal attacks. I believe that we as a community should be able to discuss things without it getting stupid or personal. Thank you.
