String of North Side robberies prompts community warning

Police are increasing their presence in some North Side neighborhoods Monday night after a string of robberies they believe are connected, according to Ald. Andre Vasquez (40th).

In an email to residents, Vasquez said the 20th Police District — which covers Lincoln Square and Edgewater — will have additional officers from CPD’s Priority Response Team on Monday night and encouraged residents to keep an eye out for Kia and Hyundai vehicles, which have been used in the robberies.


Five robberies occurred between 6 p.m. Sunday and midnight, stretching between West Ridge, Edgewater and North Center.
