Man mugged while pushing a stroller in Greenwood

A man out for a walk with his young daughter was mugged in the middle of the day.  It happened around noon last Wednesday (9/1) near 87th and Palatine.  (Clarification: the police report was taken in the 100 block of NW 85th Street, but the mugging happened at 87th and Palatine).  The man had earlier taken out some cash from his account when the mugger came up from behind him saying “Give me all your money and I won’t hurt you.”  The man, who was pushing his daughter in a stroller at the time, gave the thief $540.  The mugger ran off and the victim didn’t get a good look at him.  No one was hurt.
