Plastic thief

A dumb thief was arrested on March 3 after he held up a stroller-pushing woman on Division Avenue who had no money on her.

The victim was walking with her child at 9:32 am near Wilson Street when a man approached with a gun, partially concealed by a plastic bag. The thug demanded cash, but his would-be victim didn’t have any, so the thief grabbed her pocketbook and ran.

Police caught up with him later to find that the gun was a fake.

Where: Division Avenue and Wilson Street
