Surveillance video captured a mob beating up and robbing a woman walking on a Chicago road before coming back to brutalize her again after bystanders refuse to help her.
The harrowing incident unfolded at about 4:20 a.m. on Jan. 31 when the 35-year-old woman was walking on Lawrence Avenue in Jefferson Park on her way to work. Adriana spoke to WLS-TV about the attack.
Video shows a car pulling up to the woman and four men jumping out and surrounding her. She says they had guns and threatened her while taking her property, including her cellphone and wallet.
“The pistol. The three of them had guns. They pointed at her head, her neck,” said the victim’s daughter.
Adriana, her husband, and their 12-year-old watched the video of the brutal attack with tears streaming down their faces.
The video shows the mob getting back into their car and speeding away. The woman tried to flag down cars and a Chicago Transit bus to ask for help, but no one stopped.
And that’s when the attackers appeared to come back.
Video shows one assailant appear to punch her.
“They told her they were going to shoot her if she didn’t give them the pin,” said Adriana’s daughter. “The next time they came, she thought they were going to kill her for the same thing.”
Adriana was transported to a hospital and was reported to be in good condition.
She told WLS that she survived by focusing on her husband and daughter.
Residents in the area said the incident had them concerned about their safety.
“It worries me, so now, I end up staying basically at home once the sun goes down,” said Dawn Hughes.
Police said they were investigating but so far, had no information about any potential suspects.
