Two teens attempted to jump a man in Point Breeze for his phone last week.
The 25-year-old was on the 1800 block of Moore Street at 12:55 p.m. Feb. 27 when the pair punched him, knocked him to the ground and went through his pockets, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. They were unsuccessful in stealing his phone and fled in an unknown direction.
One of the offenders was described as black with a dark complexion, age 18 and wearing a blue puffy jacket, blue jeans and a gray and blue Aeropostale knit hat. A detailed description of the other perpetrator was not available at press time.
