A University of Chicago student successfully defended herself against an armed robber by seizing his weapon in a tense confrontation.
The incident took place on a Wednesday amidst a series of robberies targeting students in the vicinity of the bustling campus area.
Madelyn, a 21-year-old student, came face-to-face with a masked assailant intent on stealing her phone.

“I was just walking home from class and I see a man in a mask approach me,” Maddi told abc7. “And he kind of comes towards me and I think to myself, ‘just keep walking,’ but then we have an altercation.”

The ordeal, captured by a nearby surveillance camera, shows Madelyn grappling with the suspect, ultimately wresting the gun from his grasp.

“In the tussle, I was able to take the magazine out of his gun, and I tossed it into a bush. But at the moment, I didn’t know what I was grabbing,” Maddi told NBC.

“I think fight definitely kicked in, but I’m in no way advocating of resisting armed robbery,” Maddi said. “I think it was really not the right decision looking back on it… It all happened so quickly. Definitely just give the phone away. I don’t think the altercation was the best solution.”

This incident wasn’t a one-off occurrence; just before, two students fell victim to a robbery perpetrated by four armed individuals in a black Infiniti.

Yielding to the demands of the assailants, the duo remained unscathed as the perpetrators fled in their vehicle.

Shortly after, Maddi was confronted by two armed men as she ventured off-campus.

Thankfully, no injuries were sustained.

The Chicago Police Department is actively probing the situation.

Maddi praised the response of the campus and police, emphasizing the importance of capturing the attackers, “I usually feel safe walking on campus, but finding the people who did this attack is crucial because they will do it again.”
