GONE WITH THE SCHWINN: Phone Snatched By Bicycling Thief

A bike riding thug swiped a woman's phone in Boystown overnight, then peddled away into the night, according to police reports.

The victim's call for help came in at 1:57AM after a black male wearing all black clothing snatched her phone near Broadway and Stratford.

After grabbing the woman's Samsung Galaxy, the offender peddled westbound into the night.

Officers gave the victim a ride home, but no report is filed.


  1. So, she was talking on the phone, I'm guessing?

  2. This same mo goes on frequently in Champaign Urbana il at the University of Illinois, thugs on bikes threatening weapons who rob kids and then ride away, I thought it was unbelievable down there, amazed its going on up here now!

  3. There you go with the headlines again. Too funny. Nicely done.
