A young man was mugged in the mid-afternoon on Queens Drive, near Jane, according to 31 Division police.
Two young men approached the victim at about 3:45. They threatened him and demanded his iPhone. The victim handed it over, and the muggers fled east, toward Jane St. The victim was not injured.
Last year there were similar muggings in the after-school hours when the weather was still fair. In the most striking case, two young men were mugged within half-an-hour of each other at the same intersection.
This mugging is somewhat unusual, however. Almost all the other muggings happen along the busy streets: Jane, Weston, and Lawrence. Only one other mugging in the past year happened on the residential area; last month, a 13-year-old boy had his phone stolen in the mid-afternoon.
If you happened to witness one of the muggings, you can always get in touch with the police at 222-TIPS.
