ICH BIN EIN MUGGER: Neighborhood Robbery With An International Flair

A concerned citizen called 911 on behalf of a man who was reportedly robbed of his wallet at the corner of Clark and Buckingham around 6:10 this morning.

Upon arrival, officers learned that the victim, dressed in a leather jacket and yellow silk shirt, only spoke Burmese.

The offender, a male, white, reportedly spoke German.

Officers attempted to put the victim in touch with a Burmese translator.
It appears that no report was ever filed.
