Mugged for money
On Wednesday, July 5 at approximately 11 p.m., a victim was walking on 18th Street toward Fitzwater Street when he was approached by two offenders. The victim reported a larger black male intentionally bumped into him, pulled a gun from his waistband and struck the victim in the mouth with it. This caused the victim, who believed he was “set up,” to lose two front teeth and break a third. The second offender, a black male with a thin build, then restrained the victim while the first removed $100 from the victim’s pant pocket. Both offenders then fled the scene and were last seen running northbound on 18th Street.
