Source: Chicago Journal

A 29-year-old man was robbed by two men in their late teens or early 20s around 2:30 a.m. Nov. 15. The men pulled up to the victim in a maroon 2006 Kia. The victim told police that the men got out of the car and shoved him up against a wall. One of the punks clobbered the victim in the head with a revolver with a white handle grip. The two took $300 off the man and fled in their car. The victim heard one of the men refer to the other by his name. Information from the 24th District indicated that the man with the gun hangs out by the Thorndale el stop. The victim was able to provide the license plate number to police. Area 3 detectives traced the license plate to an Uptown address but did not find the suspect.

The second robbery occurred about 40 minutes later at 3:10 a.m. Two men driving a red car approached two men on the 5000 block of N. Kenmore. The 28-year-old and 29-year-old victims told police they were about to enter a restaurant when the car pulled up beside them. Two men in their early 20s got out of the car brandishing handguns. Both demanded money and pistol whipped one of the victims in the face. After taking $25, both got back in the car and fled northbound on Kenmore. A woman and another passenger waited inside the car. The victim who got hit was taken to Weiss Hospital where he was admitted in stable condition. The victims are acquainted with one of the robbers.
