An Evanston man riding his bike in the 1900 block of Dodge Avenue just after midnight Sunday morning had an unpleasant encounter with two teenagers.

Police say the two approached the bike rider, asked him about the bike and then demanded money. After the victim refused to hand over the money, the robbers pushed him off the bike and took money from his pocket.

That story tops today’s crime report — which also includes several graffiti incidents on the city’s south side as well as a burglary attempt foiled when the thief set off an alarm.
