Chicago, IL - Police are hoping the arrest of two black men who punched a white woman and grabbed her purse in Bucktown this morning will “clear up” a rash of similar muggings that have been plaguing that Northwest Side community recently.
A man exited a car and slugged the victim in the side of her face - knocking her down - before snatching her purse and fleeing in the vehicle with two other men, said Shakespeare District Police Lt. Michael Mulkerin.
Authorities charged 17-year-old Travion Lockett, of the 2200 block of West Maypole, for hitting her in the face and asssiting a 16-year-old boy with the robbery. Police didn’t identify the younger boy.
