This past Sunday (10/17), a man called police after saying he’d been robbed in the 5200 block of University Way.  He told officers he was standing on the sidewalk around 7:30pm when he was approached by three men.  After the men said something that made him feel intimidated, he ran away.  But he says one of the men tackled him from behind and then stole his wallet.  Officers say the victim had an abrasion on his leg and wrist from being tackled, but he declined medical attention.  There were no witnesses to the mugging.  The victim was only able to give police a vague description of the men.  You can read the full police report below.
