A juvenile was mugged of cash and valuables in broad daylight near a school Saturday afternoon, according to Colorado Springs police.
The incident happened around 1:40 p.m. Saturday in the area of 4320 East Pikes Peak Avenue. That's adjacent to the Jack Swigert Aerospace Academy and the Aspen Townhomes. The teenage victim told police that an African-American teenager, roughly 6 feet tall, came up to him, punched him several times, stole money and valuables, then drove away in a green four-door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Impala.
The young victim sustained minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene. Police were unable to locate the alleged mugger. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call CSPD's non-emergency line at (719) 444-7000.
