1 robber arrested, 3 others escape after holdup crew claims at least 9 more victims

Another wave of armed robberies hit Chicago on Wednesday morning, this time spanning from Little Village to Logan Square. One suspect was apprehended by police, but three others managed to get away. It is unclear how many robberies have occurred, but CWBChicago has confirmed nine, almost all of which involved a group of armed men who drove around in a stolen Kia with a broken rear passenger window.

The robberies took place in communities that have been hit hard by waves of similar crime since the middle of November. Although several suspects have been arrested by Chicago police in recent weeks, robberies have slowed but have not stopped entirely.

Two men in the 3800 block of West Wabansia allegedly pistol-whipped a 52-year-old man in the face while demanding his possessions at around 6:42 a.m., according to police. The victim had nothing to give the men, so they left empty-handed.
