TURKEY TROTS: Man Loses Phone While "Trying To Be Nice"

It's going to be an extra special Thanksgiving in some thief's house.

A man loaned his phone to a stranger at Halsted and Roscoe around 10:45 last night and was stunned to see the man bolt off into the night with his property.

The victim gave chase northbound on Halsted Street but apparently failed to catch up with the hoodlum, who is described as male, black, in his early 20's, 5'10" tall, 140 pounds, wearing a black jacket and gray pants.

Case number for the theft is HW549571.
