Chicago’s historic crime wave appears to be creeping into the suburbs as two high-end retailers were hit by groups of thieves this week.
Fox 32 Chicago reported that seven to eight men stole several purses from a Bloomingdale’s store in the Westfield Old Orchard mall in Skokie, located roughly 15 miles north of Chicago.
Cellphone footage captured the incident, showing hooded individuals sprinting towards the exit with the merchandise. They were gone by the time police arrived.
No one is in custody and the incident is still under investigation, according to local police.
