A woman's purse and wallet were stolen from her car Sunday morning after she left the items momentarily while she went into her Michigan Avenue home, police said.
The victim said she parked in front of her home shortly after 5 a.m. and ran inside briefly. Upon returning, she saw a man riding away on a bicycle and found her items missing. Along with credit cards, about $75 in cash was stolen.
Officer Danny Pierini later chased a suspect through yards in the area, suffering minor injuries in the process. A suspect was apprehended, but police had not placed charges against the man as of Sunday evening.
