The Link below represents a map of the muggings that had this area on watch. The map, which highlights the seven attacks and robberiess, has red bubbles that once clicked can give further details of a specific attack (i.e. date, time and location).
Chicago’s Lincoln Park area is one of the city’s most affulent neighborhoods. Knowing this, a few individuals took matters into their own hands by beating and robbing residents in the area.
A total of seven attacks occured while two of the attacks, police say, may not be related to the other five. All of the victims targeted were men in their early to mid-20s and walking alone in the early morning hours. Each was confronted on foot from behind by at least four attackers, who were also men in their 20s. The victims were asked for their wallets, then beaten. Two of the victims were hospitalized.
**As of December 2009, no arrests have been made and police are still investigating the last two attacks.
