CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) - A man was beaten and robbed in the middle of the day in Bucktown Monday.
His shoes came off as he tried to fight off two attackers. Chicago police said a 33-year-old man walking near Armitage and Damen was beaten and robbed just before 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
Video showed the victim was sucker-punched from behind as he walked down an alley then scuffled with two men as they pushed him into a chain link fence and some garbage cans before the thieves took off with his backpack.
CBS-2 spoke to a witness who honked her horn during the attack and stayed with the victim until police arrived. She said he was a little bruised but ok.
No one is in custody.
