Attack at the Fireworks Show
Anyone hear about this one? We didn't:
- A group of people attending a fireworks show at the lakefront Saturday, Nov. 17 got attacked by a mob of 15 to 20 young men and at least one woman was robbed.
Police said the attack took place at about 10 p.m. Nov. 17 in the 1000 block of North Lake Shore Drive. A 19-year-old Chicago woman said that she was watching the fireworks show with her friends from Oak Street Beach, and after the show was over a group of about 20 people aged 15 to 18, several wearing ski masks, surrounded them and then attacked, punching and kicking them.
The woman told police she was knocked down by an assailant who appeared to be a 16-year-old who then took her purse before all the attackers fled in different directions. The woman lost her credit card and keys and reported minor injuries.
In fact, SkyLineNewspaper.com has a bunch of stories that didn't seem to find the light of day. Most are run-of-the-mill robberies, muggings and some burglaries. But you'd think that a mob of 15 to 20 people attacking someone at Oak Street....that ought to raise some uncomfortable questions for Rahm and Garry.
