A 24-year-old man was beaten with brass knuckles and robbed in the Old Town neighborhood early Saturday morning, police said. No one is in custody.
The victim was in the 1900 block of North Lincoln when a man approached him, demanded his property, and punched him in the face with knuckle-dusters at 3:25 a.m. The offender took the man’s wallet and phone, then fled westbound on Wisconsin Avenue in a four-door silver vehicle, possibly a Nissan.
Police said the robber was a black man with dreadlocks who’s about 20-years-old and stands about 5’11” tall. He wore a red shirt.
