- A neighbor tells CHS of a bus stop robbery Saturday morning near 12th and John. According to the neighbor, a woman was robbed Saturday morning while waiting for the bus on E John near 12th. Police confirmed the purse snatch attempt. The neighbor tells CHS the mugger was an especially mean chap:
This morning at 7am I was awakened by noise on the street outside my window. It was my neighbor lady who had just been robbed and then kicked to the ground while waiting for the bus on her way to work. I am sick to my stomach at the thought of what happened.
Chris and I sat and consoled her afterwards but I felt there was nothing I could do. I am sending the universe light and love. We are all brothers and sisters, please let’s start acting like it. Namaste…
called her a “rich bitch” and was kinda giving her shit before he went for her purse and kicked her to the ground as he ran… made off with her handbag and a kindle) seems she was holding her cell, keys and wallet (YAY!)
Police say the woman was kicked as she struggled to hold onto her bag and was pulled to the ground but declined medical attention. The suspect was described as a black male in his 40s wearing a dark hoodie.
- Reader Jeffrey came home from holiday travels to an unfortunate welcome at his Harrison and Summit apartment:
I know you guys post about this sometimes, so I wanted to give you a heads up that my apartment at Harrison and Summit was burglarized sometime between Christmas eve and Thursday afternoon (both my roommate and myself were out of town for the holidays.) The door was forced open and from what I can tell so far my flat screen tv, laptop computer, and a modem and router were stolen. Just wondering if maybe you heard of any other reports of theft on the hill during that time window.
