The reason any law enforcement agency releases a CRIME ALERT is to ALERT THE PUBLIC of the descriptions of wanted offenders.... But the Liberal Pandering Chicago Tribune purposely OMITTED the released race of the offenders "MALE BLACK" from the news story... Funny not one fucking news agency omitted George Zimmerman's race or the race of the dead black thug Trayvon Martin....
Police are warning the public after two armed robberies in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the Southwest Side earlier this week.
Two brothers, 15 and 18, were in an alley about 5 p.m. Tuesday in the 3100 block of West 80th Street when a man robbed the younger one, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
"This offender emerged from the mouth of an alley and displayed a BB gun and demanded everything from the victim," said Mirabelli.
The teen complied and the robber fled but the older brother began chasing the man, who drew the gun and fired several pellets. No one was struck, said Mirabelli.
The second robbery happened late Thursday about 11 p.m. on a sidewalk in the 7900 block of South Kedzie Avenue.
An 18-year-old man was walking south while texting on his phone when the robber confronted him brandishing what appeared to be a handgun. "He demanded the man's phone and valuables and the victim complied," Mirabelli said.
The victim was not harmed and the robber, described as being 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet 2 inches tall and between the ages of 17 and 23, fled on foot. The robber weighs about 155 pounds and has dreadlocks, according to a Community Alert issued by the Chicago Lawn police district.
Mirabelli said no one is in custody Saturday.
