Someone tried to steal my iPhone around 5:40 pm today while I was walking my dog on Prospect Place, between Vanderbilt and Underhill.
Tall, young black man in late teens or early 20's. No facial hair, head had short or closely shaved hair. On a bike. Wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt.
He rode onto the sidewalk and pulled up by me while I was typing on my phone. When I looked up, he demanded my phone, threatening to shoot me, tugging at his pants as if he had a gun hidden there. I refused and raised my voice, he threatened me again, I got loud and told him I'd set my dog on him. I bent down to unleash my dog, at which point he rode away.
Keep your eyes open.
