A 41-year-old Chica­go woman, Nina, trag­i­cal­ly lost her unborn baby after a bru­tal assault by a teenage gang in the Streeter­ville neighborhood. 

Return­ing home from a date night, Nina and her hus­band were sur­round­ed by at least ten youths who attacked them, report­ed­ly say­ing, “This is our street. You can’t walk around here.”

Nina was sub­ject­ed to a hor­rif­ic attack, includ­ing pep­per spray to the face, kicks to the stom­ach, and hair pulling. Her hus­band also suf­fered injuries while try­ing to pro­tect her. The two-week-preg­nant Nina lost the baby just hours later.

This inci­dent has ignit­ed out­rage and safe­ty con­cerns in Streeter­ville. Res­i­dents, already fac­ing a 20% rise in aggra­vat­ed bat­tery com­pared to 2021, are demand­ing action on the neigh­bor­hood’s esca­lat­ing crime rates. Rob­beries are up 38%, and thefts have surged by a stag­ger­ing 77%.

Only two weeks pri­or to the attack, res­i­dents voiced their frus­tra­tion with local offi­cials, urg­ing a crack­down on teen gangs plagu­ing the area. 

Alder­man Bri­an Hop­kins echoed these con­cerns, call­ing for upgrad­ed felony charges against the 14-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl involved due to the sever­i­ty of the vic­tims’ injuries.
