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.
