Between July and earlier this month, at least six robberies have been reported where the person being robbed was “grabbed from behind” and “choked.” The robberies all happened in the western and southern areas of downtown.

In two of the cases, the victims lost consciousness during the attack. When they recovered, they realized their wallets were gone.
