CA$HED: Victim Loses Hundreds In Wrigleyville Robbery

Hit from behind and robbed. That’s how one man’s night in Wrigleyville wrapped up this morning.
The victim told two police supervisors that he lost $500 to $600 cash in the strong arm robbery that unfolded behind Goose Island Brewery, 3535 N. Clark, around 3 a.m.
The offender, who is described only as a man in a black coat, fled in an unknown direction. 
Chicago Police Department case number HX136164.
