QUIET WEEK: One Guy Punched At Five Guys

This has been a very good week to be out and about in the neighborhood. There have been few confirmed relevant incidents to report.
A couple of notes:
Just before 9 p.m. yesterday, a man called 911 after a panhandler who was begging outside of Five Guys, 3215 N. Broadway, punched him in the eye. 
The offender, described as male, black, 45 years old, 5’3″ tall, 150 pounds, wearing a black and gray coat, was last seen walking south on Broadway.
Officers drove the victim around to look for the panhandler, without success. Simple battery case HX116083.
Tuesday 3:10 P.M.
An officer on patrol was flagged down by a CTA bus driver at Broadway and Barry. The driver needed help getting a man who refused to pay off of the bus.

Police spoke with the troublemaker and drove him to his requested destination: The Center on Halsted.
