Lakeview sees more robberies overnight

August 24, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Chicago police say a person cell phone was taken during an altercation on the 3500 block of Halsted Street just after 3 a.m.

Another incident happened near Addison and Clark. The victim told police he also had his wallet stolen by one person while another person hit him with an arm cast.

The robberies are the latest in an uptick of crime in the neighborhood.

As Chuck Goudie and the ABC7 I-Team reported last week, Lakeview's Boystown area had more robberies in the last three months than any area of the city.
