Unlike Friday evening’s incident, in which an armed offender shot at a female victim, this morning’s robber was tracked down and arrested.
19th district officers followed the victim’s cell phone pings and quickly caught up with the offender on a CTA bus at Fullerton and Ashland. They boarded the bus and took him into custody at 6:50AM.
A firearm was also recovered.
This morning’s victim was threatened with a short, blue revolver on the street near Clark and Wrightwood at 6:15 this morning by a man whose description closely resembles the description of Friday’s robber: black, 5’10” tall, wearing a ski mask, black hoodie, dark pants.
This morning’s robber even dumped the victim’s property in the same place that a citizen found property belonging to Friday’s victim: In a garbage room at the Covent Hotel at Clark and Drummond.
