Ahh! Sunday morning. The smell of coffee in the air and news of overnight robberies to share.
• An employee of the 24-hour CVS pharmacy at Halsted and Barry called 911 for a man who sought help in the store after being robbed around 1:30AM. Officers arrived, but the victim told them that he did not want to file a report and did not want to press charges. We’ve added this to the list of “unofficial” robberies.
• Around 3:50AM, a man called 911 from 3170 N. Sheridan at Belmont to report that he had been robbed of his cell phone. The offender is described as a male, black, 30 years old, dark complexion, with a black bandana or sweatband on his head. He was last seen running westbound on Belmont. Case #HW442548.
• Also of interest overnight, shortly after midnight, a caller identified as “security” called from Halsted and Aldine to report that they were holding a man wanted for robberies in the area. There is no indication that anyone was taken into custody.
