The robbery of a Wicker Park store by a mob of people Saturday night was caught on camera.
The workers at Mildbrand Supply Company on North Milwaukee were caught off guard when about 20 young men streamed into the store just after 6:30p.m. Saturday
Luke Cho, the store’s owner, said “They were coming in in a row. And when I saw the first 15 or 20 I knew it was a bad thing. I went and locked the door.”
The video shows the sudden flash mob getting away with several thousands of dollars worth of jeans.
Luke hopes someone will call Chicago police and help make this right, as he takes this loss out of his own pocket. Insurance doesn’t cover this type of theft.
