String of Violent Robberies Shakes Lincoln Park

A rash of attacks and robberies hit the Lincoln Park neighborhood over a six-day span in late July and early August.  Police believe at least five of the incidents to be related.  Beginning in the early morning on July 30, multiple men, all in their 20s, were attacked from behind by groups of three men or more.  In each case, the assailants demanded a wallet and then brutally attacked the victim, sending two to the hospital.

In one case, the victim was able to pick a suspect out of a lineup, but the suspect was released due to a lack of further evidence.

The police are investigating the possible connection of three other similar crimes in the proximity.
