Robbery suspect at large

On 10/19/09, at approximately 8:00 p.m., the victim, who was intoxicated, stated he was at a Tavern in the 2200 block of 3rd Av., with an acquaintance. When they left the tavern, they were confronted on the street by the acquaintance’s boyfriend, who began yelling and then fighting with the victim.

During the fight, the suspect removed a wallet from the victim’s back pocket and then ran off.  The victim gave chase, and citing the laws of physics, shed his coat to lessen his weight and increase his speed.  Sadly, the suspect was still quicker and eluded the victim after a 2 block pursuit. 

Upon returning to the fight scene, the victim found that both his coat and the acquaintance were no longer there.  

The victim sustained a bloody nose but declined medical attention.
