The offender took the man's wallet, which contained the victim's ID, $80, apartment keys and two credit cards, a Samsung Galaxy II phone and an Apple laptop. The laptop was later found in the 5700 block of Lake Street. The total estimated loss is $440, police said.
The robbery is still under investigation, police said.
CORRECTION: The only item recovered was the laptop, not the phone as originally reported. Patch apologizes for the mistake.
