Armed robberies at 54th and Ellis, and 52nd and Kenwood; crime prevention summit

On Sunday, March 30, 2008, at 9:26 p.m., on 54th Street between Ellis
and Greenwood Avenues, and at 11:15 p.m., on 52nd Street between
Kenwood and Dorchester Avenues, individuals walking alone were victims
of armed robbery. In both incidents a man confronted the victim,
displayed a silver-colored or chrome-plated gun, and demanded and took
valuables. Neither victim was harmed, and the offender fled after the
robberies. After continuing investigation, police believe that it is
likely the same man was involved in both incidents. The descriptions
given of this man are general – an African American 25 or younger,
about 5'9", 140-150 pounds, wearing dark clothing.

For those of you who want to learn more about safety and security
issues, please plan to attend the "Crime Prevention Summit" on Friday,
April 4, 2008 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Room W1 of the School of
Social Service Administration (SSA), sponsored by UCPD and the Chicago
Police Department. For more information, call (312) 747-8382.
