SOUND FAMILIAR?: Overnight Robbery On Halsted

Two 911 callers reported a robbery on the street at Halsted and Roscoe at 4:15 this morning. One caller told police that the victim lost his cell phone in the incident and would be waiting for police at the Belmont Red Line station.

The two callers offered different descriptions of the offenders:

The first caller said the offenders were two males, one on foot with no shirt and the other on a bike, fleeing southbound on Halsted Street.

The second caller said the two robbers were both on bikes, with one being a white male with short black hair wearing a blue shirt and a backpack.

Officers searched the area for the offenders without success. No report was taken because the victim did not approach officers at the robbery scene or at the Belmont Red Line.
