A man who had just left a nearby business was jumped in a street robbery early Sunday morning in the 600 block of E Pine.
According to the SPD report on the incident, the man was leaving a watering hole in the area just after 2a Sunday morning when he was grabbed by a man trying to take his backpack and his phone. The suspect shoved the victim to the ground and ran off with the bag and the phone. The victim chased the suspect for a short time but could not keep up.
A search of the area didn’t turn up the suspect.
It’s been just over a week since the last Capitol Hill area street robbery we reported. In that incident, a man was struck over the head and lost his phone in an E Union mugging on Saturday, September 3rd.
