  • A man was given an insurance check for $1,300 and he celebrated with a beer with a friend, who decided to let him stay at his place in the 2200 block of North Gale while he went to Chicago to buy drugs. About three minutes after his "friend' left for Chicago, the place was robbed by a man with a very long gun. It was then the man knew he was being set up. So he grabs the gun and tosses it away while his girlfriend -- who was hit during the struggle -- escapes and calls cops. So the robber runs off without the money and the guy wanders back to where he had been staying -- the Friendship House, 1509 N. Knoxville. Meanwhile, he lost his phone during the struggle and he couldn't locate his girlfriend. It turns out she was at the Circle K on North University, and was taken to the hospital with injuries to her lip and her head. And the money from the insurance check? She had it in her purse.
