Attempted midnight mugging
Around 12:03 a.m. on January 16, 2013, a male black who was described as about 6 foot 2 inches tall and wearing white Adidas gym shoes attempted to rob a female in the 1500 block of West Greenleaf. A Good Samaritan interrupted the alleged mugging to save the day.
The victim and Good Samaritan first told police the offender fled south on Glenwood, but later said the offender fled east on Lunt. The victim reported her keys were missing. A canvas of the area turned up nothing.
The Good Samaritan immediately ran to Everyblock to tell his net-neighbors of his good deed without offering a description of the offender or what direction he fled.
