A quick walk to a loc­al con­veni­ence store turned in­to a vi­ol­ent and costly one for a Frank­ford man on Feb. 19 when an un­known thug stole his money and cell phone.

The at­tack oc­curred at about 4:30 p.m. after the vic­tim had vis­ited the 7-El­ev­en at 5000 Frank­ford Ave. to with­draw money from an ATM and buy ci­gar­ettes. The mug­ger fol­lowed the vic­tim as he ex­ited the store and walked to the 5000 block of Dar­rah St. That’s where the crook knocked the vic­tim to the ground and stole his stuff. The mug­ger fled the area with an­oth­er un­known man.

The rob­ber was de­scribed as black, 20 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 pounds. He had a long, thin beard and wore a navy blue knit hat, a navy blue hood­ie with “Nike” prin­ted on the left side and navy blue sweat­pants.
