Man Robbed In the Arboretum

A 45-year-old Central District resident told police he was robbed in the Arboretum Saturday night.

The victim called police around 8:00pm on Saturday night and said about an hour earlier, he’d been in the arboretum when a man—described as a black male, about 6’2, 200lbs—approached him, put his arm around the victim’s throat, and took his cell phone and wallet.

The suspect fled and the victim tried to get several people in the area to help him contact police, but no one was willing to assist the man, who went home and called police.
