April 30, 2014|By Rachel Cromidas, @rachelcromidas | RedEye

The Chicago Police Department issued a community alert Tuesday night warning that men had mugged a delivery person after placing a bogus delivery order with a local restaurant.

The incident, which reportedly took place near 75th Street between South Kingston Avenue and South Coles Avenue earlier this month, involved a person placing "a bogus call" to order food, then forcibly taking the food from the deliverer without paying.

In a second incident in the same location, two men approached people on the street and demanded money, then attacked them them with their fists, according to the alert.

The offenders were described as male, black, and 16 to 22 years old; one had a fade haircut and was between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, and the other had braids and was about 6 feet tall, the report said.
