July 10, 2009, 11:19 PM Police found a 25-year-old man bleeding from the mouth at 19th and Grove. The victim said he was walking southbound in the 2100 block of Grove when a group of males passed him, then turned around and approached him from behind. The strangers asked him for “weed”. When the victim said he had none, the men battered him with fists. The victim later went to Loyola hospital for treatment. He described the offenders as four male BLACKS, all thin and about 5’6”, wearing baggy jeans; two wore black shirts, one wore a red shirt and one wore no shirt.

July 26, 2009, 11:44 PM A 23-year-old woman told police she had been to McDonald’s and was walking north on Maple when she noticed a man walking in front of her. As she approached 19th, the man crossed 19th and stopped. The woman passed him, but pretended to talk into her cell phone because she was nervous. When she looked back, the man ran toward her and tried to get his arm around her neck. The victim said she screamed and flailed; the offender fled on foot eastbound through gangways. The victim described her attacker as a male BLACK in his 30s, 6’2”, bald, athletically built, wearing a long-sleeved red shirt, black shorts and black shoes.

July 27, 2008, 4:19 PM In the 3800 block of Clarence, a 63-year-old woman noticed a newer cream-colored Chrysler pull into her alley and park alongside a garage two doors north of hers. The victim had just pulled her car into her garage when a man ran in and demanded her wallet. When the victim hesitated, the robber reached into the car and grabbed her in a headlock; she gave up a wallet containing her license, three credit cards and $40. The victim told police the robber was a male BLACK, 5’10” and stocky, with “really short” hair, dressed in a cream-color T-shirt and dark pants.

You wanna become a comedy team?
I have the answer as always.
Nothing wrong with Mexicans moving into Berwyn.
But if some of them happen to move 3 families into a one family home that means they can't afford to live here. Which means kids will be alone most of the time. And means most of money goes to bills.
So now kids want what kids want and they have to steal oe join a gang to get it.
Nothing wrong with Blacks moving into Berwyn.
But section 8 means these are single moms with kids. Again mama can't buy kids what kids want and Berwyn looks like a easy place to steal & rob from. Lotta old ladies walking around going to the bank. Do away with section 8 and then only the good Black home owners can stay. Enforce housing codes and you get rid of the gangbangers living at home that have nobody home watching them. And only the good Mexican families can stay and keep Berwyn nice. Do this and Berwyn can be like the 80's except with some Blacks & Mexicans living in peace. And no I don't want to run for Mayor of Berwyn.

The law abiding are PREY for the criminals. Criminals seek out the most likely targets for their chosen activity.
The lone mugger will not attack a victim who may put up a good struggle,defending themselves.
The victim must be weaker, or perceived to be weaker than the mugger. The criminal may go to a new level by using a weapon against the unarmed victim. This creates a larger pool of victims.
A small group of muggers may work together to overcome a single victim. This also increases their chance of success. Due to adrenaline and peer pressure they may go to far and the victim receives more serious injury.
Look at the criminal as doing his chosen job robbery, burglary, much like you going to your job

"Berwyn looks like a easy place to steal & rob from. Lotta old ladies walking around going to the bank."

Agreed, look at the victims that the criminals have targeted. Be aware the criminals are hunting in what they see as a target rich enviroment. Look at where most of the street crime takes place in Oak Park, & Forest Park.

That's why you gotta watch who you let move in the apartment buildings. They have friends who visit and they scope the area.

The casing or scoping out has resulted in some criminal activity, right?

Sometimes we long for the old days of aggressive PD's.
Today the PD has to be PC, lest they be blamed for profiling, harrassment, and other stuff.
With these muggings there was some noise did anyone call 911. Why wait for a random police patrol?

August 1, 2009, 8:51 AM A caller alerted police to an armed robbery at the Shell station at Roosevelt and Ridgeland; the suspect was seen by two witnesses as he fled in a black Chevy Cavalier with a temporary Illinois plate. The 36-year-old female gas station clerk was visibly shaken and had a mark on her neck from struggling with the robber. According to the victim, the man hung around the store for about 20 minutes before approaching her from behind, grabbing her and shoving her toward the register, saying “Let me tell you something”. The victim said she struggled with him as he said “give me the f@&#ing money” and “don’t move, I’ve got a gun, I’m going to shoot you”. The robber failed to get any cash, however, and fled the store. The victim described the robber as a male BLACK, slim and 6’ tall, in his mid to late 20s, with a short Afro, light-blue cargo pants, a grey plaid button-down shirt, dress shoes and a small amount of facial hair.

Before I read the part of the victim described the robber I knew his race.

August 1, 2009, 8:23 PM A 52-year-old woman and her 46-year-old boyfriend told police the woman was at the corner of 14th and Maple when a man came from behind her, grabbed her purse and shoved her. They struggled until he pushed her to the ground and fled, with the purse, through the alley. The victim’s boyfriend told police he thinks the robbery was ordered by his estranged wife, a Carpentersville resident. He thought this, the report said, because he saw a car in the vicinity belonging to his stepdaughter’s gang-member boyfriend, and because just before the incident, he received the following text messages from the wife:“What r u doing on Maple w the b!tch? F@*@ you, I’m gonna get mine” and “I hope you two are nice and cozy there!” The victim described the robber as a male BLACK in his 20s, 6’2”, wearing a red T-shirt and jeans.

August 3, 2009 A man from the 3500 block of Harlem told police that his friend—a woman he had known for six months, yet only by an apparent street name, “Magic”—stole his grey 1997 Buick. The Buick, the victim told police, had what he called “ghetto rims”. The victim described “Magic” as follows: female BLACK, dressed in black, red and white, wearing high heels, hair styled in blonde and black braids. He told officers he doesn’t know where “Magic” lives, but that they “got together” earlier after encountering one another at 73rd and Stoney Island.
