Eyewitness News: Thievery on 111th
Written by Bwog Staff
About an hour and a half ago, Bwog was journeying south on the east side of Broadway when we noticed three men sprinting west across moving traffic towards the other side of the street. People stood on the sidewalk between 111th and 112th and observed the men as the chase unfolded. “I hope they get him!” yelled one spirited citizen to no one in particular.
Bwog asked a passerby what was happening, and she informed us that one man made off with a wallet that did not belong to him. According to our passerby-informant, the wallet was taken from a pedestrian on 111th street. The first man (whom Bwog could barely make out in the distance) was the bandit, and the second two men who followed him were good (and fast) Samaritans.
Public Safety wasn’t aware of the incident when we spoke with them on the phone a few minutes ago, so not much is known about the current whereabouts of the wallet or the wallet bandit.
