TEXTBOOK CASE: Robbery Victim Tempts Fate, Loses In Southport Alley

There's really no better way to ensure that you will get robbed than to do what a man did this morning near Addison and Southport.

He was (a) walking in an alley; (b) while intoxicated; (c) and playing on his phone; (d) between midnight and 5AM.

Sure enough, two criminals saw the man coming, punched him in the face, and took his phone.

The offenders, described as two males, black, 16 to 20 years old, wearing white t-shirts, were last seen fleeing southbound in the alley.

As CWB reported earlier this week, the Southport area of Lake View saw a 100% increase in robbery cases in recent months.

No report is filed.
