But it won’t be today. 12 Division police report that a 14-year-old boy was mugged on Monday at around 4:30 in the afternoon near the intersection of Jane and Lawrence. The suspect, around 20 years old, threatened the boy with a knife and stole his cell phone. The mugger then fled towards Speers Avenue.
