    Men Charged With Robbing Women Walking Alone In Lakeview, Police Say
    CHICAGO - Two men have been charged with robbing women walking alone in Lakeview, police said. In two robberies early Saturday, the men saw a woman who was walking alone and used a car to block her path once she came to an alley, according to a Chicago Police news release.

  • Cubbyguy Landlord and Tax Consultant

    Glad they were caught, it appears as if women walking alone are easy prey. My wife was also a victim last year. We all need to be more vigilant and walk in pairs or carry defense mechanisms if alone. My wife's robber was also caught.

    If your looking to save some money, Menards has great trees for a really good prices. We bought 2 trees last night, one 8-9 foot for us and one 6-7 foot for our elderly aunt who lives upstairs from us. Both Frasier Furs although they had about 3 different other kinds. In total we spent $75 on 2 beautiful trees. No, unfortunately the $ doesn't support a school or a noble purpose, it just keeps more $ in your pocket book that creates opportunity for you to then support a worthy cause :)

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    And this is why i rather keep taking a Taxi cab over any Uber drivers!

  • CGF

    Taxi's are no safer. Predators are not exclusive to one brand of transportation. If you think taxi drivers are safer I'll introduce you to friends attacked/assaulted in taxis by taxi drivers..

    I doubt if an employee of your favorite grocery store or retailer assaulted someone you would boycott that employer.

    No intention to diminish the magnitude of these crimes. Just focusing my point of view on the perpetrator not an employer.

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    Your right CGF predators are not exclusive to one brand of transportation.But i have yet to see continuous news on taxi drivers assaulting passengers. I have seen MULTIPLE reports on uber drivers assaulting passengers.
