Well, well, well. Guess what was waiting in our email today? A crystal-clear photo of the robbery offender who mugged that woman in Lakeview on Saturday morning.
Around 10:35 yesterday, a man came up behind a 28-year-old woman, pushed her to the ground and took her purse near Wellington and Greenview. “The guy took off running west on Wellington, jumped a fence and ran into the alley,” a witness told us yesterday. “A good Samaritan ran after him, and another witness called the police.”
One of those witnesses captured photos of the offender from a distance as the thief fled through an alley. Now, thanks to our email friend, we can all have a good look at the coward who’s responsible.
Police yesterday described the offender as a black male in his late 20’s or early 30’s who stands about 6’2” tall. He is slender, bald, and was wearing a black tee shirt, dark jeans, and yellow boxer-style underwear, police said. The new photo makes it clear that the yellow garment was actually the robber’s shirt.
