Something scary happened at a Preston-Royal Southwest restaurant last Friday. I just wish I could tell you which restaurant. Unfortunately, the police report doesn’t specify.
What the report does say is that three people jumped a patron, presumably in the middle of his lunch, and stole his iPhone. According to the report, a manager and a witness saw the trio looking around suspiciously before one signaled to the other two that the operation was on. The report indicates that the victim had three other people at his table, but none of them was able to prevent the crime.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the victim and his dining companions were caught completely by surprise. Wouldn’t you be at 1 o’clock in the afternoon at the corner of Preston and Royal?
