Three people were recently mugged in a string of lakefront robberies.
Chicago Police issued a community alert warning people who frequent the lakefront on the city’s South Side to be aware of recent robberies, between 43rd and 47th streets.
In each of the incidents, anywhere from two to 13 young men approached victims and displayed weapons or physically attacked victims, then robbed them.
Chicago police say they will increase patrols along the lake shore path.
