~ Another robbery in Bloomingdale: A good friend of ours was robbed this evening walking to our house around 9 pm at the alleyway near 1st and Channing NW. We don't know if the perp was armed but he pressed something against the back of her head and then took her wallet and tablet. She didn't see him so couldn't provide any descriptive information. Police were called and a report has been filed and they are checking her phone - which the perp held briefly - for prints.
