Around 9:26 p.m., a Chicago police officer reported at robbery victim at North Michigan Avenue and East Oak Street.
Citing police communications, the victim was leaving Oak Street Beach, 1000 North Lake Shore Drive, when he was robbed in a nearby tunnel.
The suspects were described as a “band” of black males wearing dark-colored clothing and dreadlocks.
One source indicated there were at least six black males involved in the robbery.
Approximately 10 minutes later, around 9:38 p.m., another officer in the area spotted a group of black males running southbound, toward Michigan Avenue, from the same tunnel where the victim was robbed.
Based on police communications, it appears the second officer had no idea a crime had just occurred in the area, and there was no indication any effort was made to apprehend the suspects.
At the time of this report, the muggers were still on the loose.
While snooping around Facebook.com, Chicago News Report found a video of black mobs passing through the same tunnel were Saturday’s robbery occurred.
Although there is no violence in the video, we think this footage should serve as a reminder of just how dangerous that particular tunnel can be.
