June 15, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A 15-year-old boy was mugged at gunpoint and struck on the head by a group of teens near the Ogilvie Transportation Center in the West Loop on Tuesday evening.
The incident happened about 6:30 p.m. near an alley at 101 N. Clinton St., according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
The victim was approached by a group of seven male teens, Mirabelli said.
One, who was armed with a handgun, approached the victim and demanded his money, according to police. A second teen struck the victim on the back of his head, Mirabelli said.
The group got the boy's cell phone, cash and a bus card, police said.
Police are asking that anyone who may have seen the robbery and can provide a description of the offenders call Belmont Area detectives. Additionally, if anyone sees someone matching the description of the suspects, they should call police.
The offender with the gun was described as a black male with a dark complexion, about 19, 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds with brown eyes and black hair in dreadlocks.
The offender who struck the boy in the head was described as a black male between 15 and 18 with brown eyes and black hair, also in dreadlocks. He is about 5-foot-11 and 150 pounds, and was wearing dark blue jean shorts and a T-shirt that had the word "ENYCE" in rhinestones, Mirabellli said.
The other offenders were described only as black males believed to be in their teens.
No one was in custody as of late Wednesday morning, and Belmont Area detectives are investigating.
This incident is at least the tenth similar attack in the downtown area since the beginning of the month.

I was going to say, it’s only the 15th.
No, no problem here.
Oh those wacky teens.
don't you just love now how they more and more use the term "dark" skin to describe blacks?...oh, and the dark hair...LOL
All this hope and change.................
And right in Obammy’s back yard.
My only question: is this planned and organized?
wait to Juneteenth or whatever that is comes along....another made up holiday..
Only takes a quick Google to find out that ENYCE is “Enyce ([en-ne-che]) is an American hip hop fashion label owned by Sean Diddy Combs.”
pack of jackals
In tri-racial, politically correct Austin Texas, the common description twenty years ago was “male with black hair and brown eyes”. Very helpful.
These poor downtrodden black folks are just trying to make a living ON CLINTON ST. How fitting!!
“My only question: is this planned and organized?”
I have wondered if it is training.
When guns are outlawed...
Relate this recent attack to the imposition of a curfew in Baltimore.(There is a Post about it here at FR) So far nothing reported out here in the West Coast.”
History will record that “The Spark of Lawlessness” started in Chicago.
Look, it’s an improvement. Liberal papers for years have hidden the race of men committing violent crimes IF they were black. It’s one of the reasons black crime hasn’t been dealt with - total liberal elite denial. So be thankful for this - it’s an honorable change ...
We’re all going to have to become a “Bernhard Goetz”.
Am I imagining things, or is it getting worse since Rahm Emmanuel took Daley’s place? I know Chicago has never been good, but there seem to be a lot more crime stories.
Isn’t that odd, criminals having guns - don’t they know that’s against the LAW?
What has changed is the violence is now organized (flash mobs), and it has migrated from the Southside to the Gold Coast areas.
The slaves in Texas weren’t informed they were free until June 19th. That used to be a Texas holiday. Then blacks all over found out they might get a day off....if they are lucky enough to have a job.
Public hangings might slow this down. Future consequences mean nothing to those that can’t comprehend actions have consequences.
Hobbes is proving to be accurate in post WASP America.
Maybe the stories are only coming out now? I can’t believe this just started a couple of months ago.
FWIW, I think Rahm Emmanuel has actually been trying to stop these things, which may be why there’s a sudden upsurge in their reporting.
Rahm’s gotta get money some how!
“The incident happened about 6:30 p.m. near an alley at 101 N. Clinton St., according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.”
Well, since the incident took place about 6:30 PM the boys had to have something else to do before “Midnight Basketball?”
All species have subspecies... in some species the subspecies appears to be the dominate one.
I think I’ll Barbeque that day, any occasion to
que is as good as another. Happy Juneteenth to
BBBT I thought Chicago was a “gun free” zone..
I seem to have missed the reports of white gangs doing this.
Blacks come in a lot of shades, and I think that the description spelled out the particular perp's coloration.
It was going on pre Rahm. Hopefully he’ll get a handle on it. Concealed carry would help, but that’s only me speaking. The authorities would tell you the worst thing you can do when attacked is defend yourself.
And it's that migration that's getting the media's attention.
But not to worry because...
A recent episode feature a ‘falsh mob’ raiding a convenience store, while a ‘handler’ held the door open with a cell phone in his hand. Make no mistake, these are training exercises for a planned application of mob mentailty when the law rejects the sonofabitch in the Wite House, OR when the American people refuse to take that final stroll tot he chambers the gloablists have arranged for US.
Amish on a rampage...in the no concealed carry state of Illinois....
Reports any crime.
Paste in 101 N. Clinton St and you'll see it. My eyesight must be failing, because I don't see it. Maybe no one reported it. Maybe the database isn't accurate.
Maybe it's on Clearmap. I'm too lazy to look
Heck, they’ve been hitting stores on Michigan Avenue for months. Personally I don’t think we’re talking training exercises, unless these guys are morons, likely, you keep that quiet. They’ve simply found an effective way of mobilizing a small mob without burning a neighborhood down. Which attracts attention. I’ve noted that in most of these incidents the criminals aren’t caught. They win. An effective tactic, for a while.
Watch out Detroit, here we come!
Not Obama, he was on the golf course.
“The offender with the gun”
Guns are banned in Chicago. No CCW in Illinois.
How was this possible?
Actually all the white guys are on TV portrayed as thieves so you’d buy some sort of home protection device or ID theft protection. Notice no Black or Asian or Hispanic bad guys in those ads?
“Actually all the white guys are on TV portrayed as thieves so youd buy some sort of home protection device”
We have home protection devices, but I guess you can never have enough ammunition.
Yep, I think old Bernhard will go down as a societal visionary...............Pretty soon, I might add.
