The victim was uninjured.
In light of the recent muggings in Lincoln Park and Lakeview, Chicago police and some North Side aldermen are hosting a public meeting where they'll provide information on personal safety.
Initially, there were four strong-armed robberies in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, but since then there have been reports about other robberies and attempted robberies in the Lakeview, Rogers Park and Ravenswood neighborhoods.
Police recommend residents avoid traveling alone in dark, late hours of the night.
The public meeting is scheduled to take place at the Lincoln Park Cultural Center at 2045 Lincoln Park West at 7 p.m. Thursday.
