    Muggers continue to plague Lincoln Park.

    Two robbers -- one a man with a gun, one a woman with a bottle -- mugged and assaulted a 25-year-old woman in Lincoln Park this morning, say cops.

    At about 1:55 a.m., the duo approached the woman as she walked north in the 1900 block of N. Halsted. The man pulled a gun. The victim handed over her purse, only to be hit by the female thief with a bottle.

    The suspects fled in a blue hatchback, and police have not yet linked the robbery to other robberies in the neighborhood.
