10:30pm ARMED ROBBERY, together with GUNSHOT, at 1850 N Sedgwick

Late evening armed robbery of two individuals walking at 1850 N Sedgwick. Two black males (one about 6’2” and the other with a shaved head, about 5’10”, with earrings) approached victim 1 and demanded all belongings, then pistol whipped victim 1 on the head while also choking victim 1. They also demanded the belongings of victim 2, and when she refused, they fired their gun in her direction. Offenders fled in a grey or light SUV. Victims are ok and reported crime to police.

Police expressed that a high number of such crimes in Old Town (estimated 50) have taken place in the past week.

  • John S. I think your comment is narrow minded. Quite frankly, as a Black woman living in the Gold Coast, I cross the street if I encounter ANY unsavory character - Black, White, etc. I don’t just look for Black men.

  • I agree with Tracey, I always follow my gut- and am not embarrassed to start running if I feel uneasy about someone on the street, regardless of what he looks like or skin color.

First revealed in late 2016 as a 14-story building containing 365 rental apartments, the mixed-use project at the corner of North and Larrabee was scaled back to 10 stories and 293 units. It was subsequently rejected in September due to lingering concerns over parking, traffic, and density.
