Offender description: Male, black, 22-year-old, short fade hair style, 5'8" tall, skinny, wearing a gray hoodie and loose pants. He made off with the victim's cell phone and wallet.
Over the weekend, a man was arrested in the 1200 block of Cornelia after a woman reported being robbed at gunpoint nearby. Another woman was robbed early Saturday morning in the 3600 block of Magnolia. No one was arrested in that case.
Juvenile Arrested For Robbery WarrantA 19th district officer's instincts paid off after he stopped a 15-year-old boy in the 1100 block of Newport shortly after 3 o'clock this morning. A name check revealed that the teen has an outstanding warrant for robbery.
The teen, whose Facebook page shows him posing with large amounts of cash and apparently fake handguns, was taken into custody for investigation.
The arrest took place about two blocks from the scene of this morning's robbery on Southport.
