Reader report: Laptop Robbery
A reader commented on yesterday’s crime recap with a report of a laptop robbery at Haus Coffee on 24th Street Monday evening around 7 p.m.:
“Someone walked into Haus cafe and stole a woman’s laptop while the woman was sitting at a table using it next to some other customers. The woman and another patron chased the thief for a block or so, but they didn’t catch him. The thief was a young man, perhaps 15 or 16 years old. He apparently checked the doorway while walking in and then ordered a hot chocolate. While the hot chocolate was being made, he grabbed the laptop and ran.”
The incident may have been captured on video.
