On August 1, 2018 at approximately 10:45 a.m., a female was walking southbound in the 1100 block of N Cicero Ave., when an unknown offender approached the victim from behind and wrapped his arms around the victim’s stomach, attempting to lift the victim from the ground. The victim fought the offender, releasing the offender’s hold of her, at which time the offender fled from the scene.

weapon and an armed encounter between the offender and police ensued. An officer
discharged his weapon and shot the offender. The man was transported to an area hospital
for treatment of his wounds and is in serious condition. A weapon was recovered at the scene.
