CHICAGO — Chicago police issued a warning Tuesday after a dozen similar robberies throughout the city in the last three weeks.

Neighbors in West Lakeview told WGN News they remain worried, hoping an uptick in police presence in the area will help ease their concerns. In response to crime issues, 19th District officers held an outdoor roll call at Hamlin Park. Officers spoke with neighbors, ensuring them the police were working to catch the culprits.

Johanna Gottlieb told WGN News she moved to West Lakeview four years ago because of the tight-knit community but is discouraged by the recent surge in crime.

“It’s really really sad and it could happen to anyone,” she said. “We have conversations via text with all of the women on this block. – Do you need sugar? Do you need this? Drop off? Pick up? – Now with this, it’s just time to be together more than ever.”

Gottlieb revealed talks about forming a neighborhood watch have begun as police look to find the robbers. Authorities said in each incident, a group of men donned dark clothing and black ski masks and fled in a dark-colored sedan.

“I left my house today for my daily walk and ran into a detective who asked a few questions,” Gottlieb noted. “I said, ‘please don’t leave.'”
