A woman was robbed early Sunday near the North Side home of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
The 33-year-old woman was walking in the 4200 block of North Hermitage about 1:45 a.m. when someone came up behind her and stole her purse, police said. Emanuel lives on the same block.
The male then struck her on the lip, according to a police report.
A police officer assigned to the mayor’s detail heard the woman screaming and another officer chased the suspect southbound on Hermitage, then westbound on Berteau, according to the report.
The suspect got into a silver SUV driven by someone else and escaped, according to the report. The woman refused medical attention.
