Woman robbed by teen on Near North Side

Police are investigating a brazen robbery on Chicago’s Near North Side.

At approximately 10:58 a.m., a black male believed to be in his teens, snatched a woman’s red iPhone on the 800 block of North Kingsbury Street, near Kingsbury and Chicago Avenue.

The crook was last seen wearing a black and white hooded sweatshirt with horizontal stripes, and blue sweatpants with yellow stripes.

After the robbery, the offender fled northbound on Cambridge Avenue to a group of mostly boarded up CHA row-houses; which I believe are a part of the Cabrini Green housing development.

Police called the stolen cell phone several times, and someone, presumably the suspect, answered and hung up. 

The thief is still at large.
