Last tuesday on 1-10-2017 i was going walking to the bus stop on damen and cullerton between hoyne and damen but on cullerton. I seen two men in a car one got out with a blue hoodie black jacket , light blue jeans , and an afro hair style. I found it odd that he did look at me as he went across the street he put on a black hat and as his friend drove away i did asume anything. As i walked and almost at damen just a few houses from the train i heard someone run up to me and hit me a few times and i fell down and ran i notice he was running away and as i turned to look at him it was the same guy who got out of the car . Yet i didn't have anything in my bag cause i knew about the robberies going on . All i had was makeup sone papers from work and a pair of pants . Tho i ran to the tain station i thank the man at the coffe shop who called police and the ambulance cause at that moment i noticed i was bleeding heavy from my head . I went back to the seen to find my phone which i dropped cause i had in my sleeve cause i was about to look at the bus tracker but it was too windy so he didn't get that . Thank the lord . Later that day as i got home a neighbor on the same block came to my home and brang my bag they said someone hung it on there fence in the am and it was sitting there .. all my belongings where in there too. Im greatful for it being returned but what i went through is terrible. Please tell your family and watch out. These animals are targeting women at the early hours while they go to work .
