6:38, Mozart and Devon – Robbery in progress. Male black grabbed a woman’s purse and has fled in an unknown direction.

6:39, Albion and Fairfield – Theft in progress, female black has fled down the alley after reportedly trying to steal a baby. 2 units en route.

6:44, 1130 W. Berwyn – Assault in progress, male panhandler is becoming aggressive and threatening people near the Payless Shoes at Berywn and Broadway.

6:45, Albion and Fairfield – Female suspect did not grab any baby, but she’s got a purse she snatched. She is now wanted for strong-arm robbery, officers are searching for her. She is wearing all black and a black hat.

6:47, Dispatcher reports that the theft/robbery incidents described above are likely related. It sounds like the consensus is that the “baby snatching” call may have been a ruse.

6:50, Albion and Fairfield – Officers speaking with a witness and touring the area. Witness thinks the offender is a male black with dreadlocks and not a female.

6:51, Albion and Fairfield – Officers have decided that the previously separate theft/robbery incidents are one and the same.

6:54, Mozart and Devon – Dispatcher reports there is a confirmed female offender likely working with the above male as a team. A witness at this location claims to know this female’s name. In the meantime, the purse has been recovered. Minus $60 and a red T-Mobile phone.
