Decatur Police Sgt. Jennifer Ross reports that at 7:34 pm on June 9, officers responded to a call of a pedestrian robbery at the 1300 block of Oakview Road. The victim is a 13-year-old boy. He told police he was walking east and saw six older teenage boys walking toward him. The victim told police he “crossed the street multiple times” to get away from the group, but each time the group would also cross the street. Four of the boys blocked the victim’s path on the sidewalk and started asking him questions. The victim tried to dial 911 on his cell phone. One of the boys took the cell phone away.
