City Goes After Problem Businesses, Vacant Buildings

It's not the Aons and Boeings of the world, but some of the beeper stores and the liquor and tobacco outlets city officials say are crime magnets. Phil Rogers reports.

A store clerk was injured Tuesday morning when two thieves, one armed with a large knife, robbed a convenience store on the Illinois Institute of Technology campus, police said.

The robbery occurred around 2:30 a.m. in the 3200 block of South State Street in Bronzeville. Two masked men stole money from the cash register and cut the 47-year-old employee on his lower right leg before fleeing, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Though early reports indicate the weapon used in the robbery was a machete, police would only confirm the object was a “large knife” and couldn’t say if surveillance cameras recorded the offense, the Tribune reports.
