In the summer of 2009, a series of robberies occurred in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. Police have made no arrests to date for any of the incidents, although they say that five of the seven are linked.

In all of the attacks, the victim was a man in his early to mid-20s and was walking alone. Each man was approached from behind by at least four men on foot, also in their 20s, asked for his wallet and then beaten in the head and face. Two of the victims were hospitalized.

The victim of one of the attacks (on North Cleveland Avenue) identified one of his attackers in a physical lineup, but the suspect was released due to lack of evidence.
