SHARE Police warn of strong-arm robberies on North Side

Police are warning North Side residents after a series of strong-arm robberies last week in Uptown and Wrigleyville.

In three separate incidents, two men walked up to victims, punched or pushed them and then stole their wallets or purses, according to a community alert from Town Hall District Chicago Police.

The first two robberies happened on Jan. 4, at 2 a.m. in the 4500 block of North Broadway and at 6:20 a.m. in the 1000 block of West Buena, the alert said. The third happened Jan. 8 at 1:45 a.m. in the 900 block of West Waveland.

Police did not have a detailed description of possible suspects but said each robbery was carried out by two men.

Anyone with information on the robberies is asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
