  • Harvard robberies: Police were called to the 1500 block Harvard between Pike and Pine early Saturday to a reported street robbery at knifepoint by a group of teens. Police arrived to find multiple victims — the group had pulled off at least one other street robbery nearby before fleeing the area. According to East Precinct radio, police were called to the area around 3 AM after a report that multiple people had just been forced to hand over their wallets at knifepoint to a group of young male suspects. When officers arrived, they found an additional victim apparently robbed by the same group. The suspects were described as young black males in their teens or early 20s, each wearing plain black clothing. A search for the suspects was not immediately successful. We do not have any reports of injuries associated with the hold-ups.

  1. Regarding the multiple robberies on Harvard…..teens totally out of control! What are they doing out at 3AM? Where is the parenting? Answer….nonexistent. I hope the perps are caught, but it’s probably unlikely as long as the “no snitch” rule prevents the police from finding them.
