The Morning Blotter: Now He's Going To Need Those Pills More Than Ever Edition

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee August 12, 2011

What's worse than getting mugged? Getting mugged for your anxiety medication!


At about 4:00 p.m. on August 7th, a man was standing outside the bus tunnel on 3rd and Pine (mistake!) counting out his anti-anxiety medication in his hand.


Another man approached the victim from behind, put a knife to the back of his neck, and told him to hand over the pills. 


The victim handed over his medication, and the suspect told him, "I'm gonna fuckin' kill you if you fuckin' follow me."


The suspect ran off, and the victim rode his bike to a payphone and called 911.


The victim told police the suspect stole between 45-50 of his pills.
