Video captures man being assaulted, robbed in North Side alley

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.
