ASSAULT & PEPPER: No Report Filed In Overnight Robbery

When no report is filed,
crime disappears like magic.
UPDATE: It now appears that the victim decided to file a report later on Saturday. Case HX406999.

A woman flagged down police on School Street near Sheffield overnight after being pepper-sprayed and robbed of her purse.

Unfortunately, she decided to not file a report, so the crime will never be included in city statistics.

The incident happened around 2:30AM when two offenders—both black men, one of whom was heavyset and wore a floral print—sprayed the woman and fled with a bright green tote bag that contained her credit cards and $150 cash.

Officers drove the woman around the neighborhood to look for her attackers, but came up empty handed. No report.
