On June 12, at approximately 10:30 p.m., a woman was walking in the 1400 block of Spruce Street, when she reported that a man and woman approached her from behind and started talking to her like they knew her. When the woman turned around one of the suspects grabbed her cell phone directly from her hand and then the two individuals took off running. A few hours later the victim located her phone, but other items with the phone were still missing.
