On 10/26/16, between 7:30 PM and 9:00 PM, a series of street robberies occurred in the Westwood and south of Westwood neighborhoods. The suspects primarily targeted pedestrians walking on the sidewalk. The suspect described as a male Black, 20 to 30 years old, wearing a dark hoodie, dark pants, approached the victims on foot displaying a handgun, taking cellular telephones from the victims. In most cases, the suspect fled to a waiting vehicle described as a black 4 door sedan with a get away driver inside.
This is an active on-going investigation and all leads are being investigated and pursued.

GROUP FOR PEOPLE WITH A CHRONIC LUNG CONDITION
I host a meeting every other month for people with chronic lung conditions other than TB or cancer. It’s a very informal support and information group, free of charge, that has been ongoing for about 15 years.
We are affiliated with a national non-profit organization, NTM Info & Research (NTMir), formed on behalf of patients with pulmonary nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) disease for the purpose of patient support, medical education, and research. The organization comprises patients, physicians and other medical practitioners, and researchers.
Our group is open to all and the next meeting will be on Monday, October 31, at 1:30 p.m. at my house, 641 Warner Avenue, in Westwood. Please feel free to contact me for more information. I look forward to speaking with you and meeting you!
