Oct 4: University Police arrest Daytime Mugger

Not sure exactly what he did while in Hyde Park, but on Oct 4 it was reported that University Police apparently arrested a man that had been on a strange, multi-town mugging spree:

Homewood police said Tuesday that they have nabbed a puzzling daylight bandit who robbed four people at gunpoint in four separate towns.

Puzzling, they say, because of the items he stole from his victims -- including a school backpack, a set of keys and a lunchbox.

"I don't know, maybe he was hungry," Deputy Police Chief James Gannon said.

The man, believed to be in his 20s, was arrested by University of Chicago Police on Tuesday afternoon, and charges were pending.
