Burglars hit restaurant
A 38-year-old man arrived at his restaurant on the 1100 block of W. Bryn Mawr at 10 a.m. Sept. 18 and noticed the building’s rear door ajar. When he inspected his restaurant, the cash register drawer was open and $10 was missing. About $250 cash was also missing from a shelf near the register.
Victim strong-armed on Broadway
A 23-year-old man was robbed by a man and woman in their 30s on the 4800 block of N. Broadway around 4 a.m. Sept. 20. The victim said he had left a bar and was walking down Broadway when the woman engaged him in conversation. While walking, the woman stopped the victim when the man grabbed him and shoved him up against a wall. The victim turned his wallet over to the couple, who removed $45 before throwing it to the ground.

Burglars ransacked a residence on the 1600 block of W. Winona sometime between Sept. 20 and Sept. 24.

Teens intimidate, rob victim
A group of males in their late teens, perhaps six of them, robbed a 39-year-old man on the 5900 block of N. Glenwood around 3 a.m. Sept. 20. The victim told police that he had just parked his car when he noticed the teens standing on the corner. As he walked northbound toward Ardmore, he realized that some of them were following him. The victim moved to the middle of the street for light and safety, when one of the kids approached him saying, “Did you say something? Got something to say to me?” When the rest of the group surrounded him, the victim laid down his messenger bag. The teens ordered him to empty his bag and took his belongings. They also forced him to empty his pockets of his cell phone, car and house keys. The punks threw the victim’s keys in the grass and took off with the victim’s cell phone, debit card and $5.
