  1. This same man robbed me at this location at1:30-2am! I never talked to him. He sprinted up to me and pushed me and ripped the phone out of my hand. There was no conversation that occurred and i didnt even see him coming. This man needs to be stopped.

    I was robbed at Buckingham and Halsted this morning at 5:51 a.m. - I know the time, because I was able to dial 911 before the "friendly fellow" who was attempting to chat me up was able to grab my phone. The offender was a young african american, 20-22 yro, approximately 5'7"-5'8" with a very slender build, blue hooded sweatshirt and jeans. Sounds very similar to the offender profiled in the attack early monrning 8/19
