Another phone robbery

From the Edgewater North Neighbors block club:

Dear Neighbors,

The following was posted on Facebook yesterday by a friend of mine who lives on Granville near Glenwood:

“I am sorry to bring such bad news but I did want to let you all know that a woman was robbed of her phone yesterday evening [August 12] in daylight hours at gun point in the 1300 block of West Rosemont. The incident happened directly across the street from where I was robbed by force for my IPhone at the same time of day. My friend who lives there witnessed this last night. Please pass on this information as there is concern that this is a group of criminals feeding on the neighborhood. My perpetrator and the one last night do not match descriptions. I have limited outdoor use of phones to emergencies only with my children and I am also not allowing the IPod Touches to leave the house right now as they look like an IPhone. The victims were both female. I know all of our children are not very often out and unattended, but I want to be sure you and all of your children are safe.”
