IN THE BAG: "Clean Cut" Thug Beats, Robs 60-Year-Old

A 60-year-old man was beaten and robbed after he cashed a $440 check in the currency exchange at Irving Park Road and Broadway around 11pm last night.

Witnesses say the man was beaten to the ground by a "clean cut" offender who ripped away the victim's blue shoulder bag and then fled south toward Gill Park. The victim was transported by ambulance to Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment.

Police are looking for the male attacker, who witnesses describe as black, about 30 years old, 5'11" tall, with short hair, wearing a black shirt, and jeans.
