North Side Businesses Being Robbed Late At Night

The police sent out an alert warning about armed robberies taking place at businesses during the wee hours of the morning. There is a pattern developing in the 19th District where a male customer enters businesses between 2am and 3am, pretends to purchase something, and then implies that he has a weapon and robs the place.

According to the alert, one such incident happened in Lakeview, another in Lincoln Park, and another in Uptown.

But here's the thing: the address given for the Uptown robbery (on May 11th) is the 4000 block of Kenmore. We can't think of a single retail business on that block, let alone one that would be open at 2:30am.

So we'll pass the warning along to business owners, and if you know the person pictured, please give the police a call.
