She described the attacker as a skinny black man who stands about 5’6” tall. He was wearing a black beanie and black clothing with a black book bag that had a silver medallion or tag.
He fled in an unknown direction with the victim’s iPhone, medicine, and $600 cash.
When the vehicle reached the 1500 block of W. Melrose, the driver pulled a knife, demanded their valuables, and then forced them out of the car.
The offender drove a dark SUV and is described as a black man with a medium complexion who wore a striped shirt. He got away with the victims’ phones, credit cards, an Urban Outfitters leather bag, and a French passport.
The victim, who refused to file a police report, said that the offender approached him in a nearby alley and attempted to rob him while holding a handgun. Again, the offender fled without any proceeds.
Police said the gunman was a skinny black man with braided hair who stands about 5’7” tall, weighs about 160 pounds, and has “metal in his mouth.”
