One of our readers, who wishes to remain anonymous, wrote it to report an incident that happened at around 11:15 p.m. last night near Queen Anne Ave N and W Armour Street.
A girl was walking by herself and in an apparent attempt was knocked down by a guy all dressed in black with a black hood. Apparently he tried to take her bag. His attempt was unsuccessful and he ran west towards Rogers Park. The police came within minutes and not sure what the outcome was… Just a reminder to our neighbors to keep a watchful eye out and to be vigilant.
Last March, after a violent mugging of another young woman, members of the Uptown community gathered to create a new, proactive block watch program. More information on how to get involved in community crime prevention and block watches here.
