A would-be mugger made off with something more malodorous than money Thursday morning, police said.
An unknown man approached a 62-year-old woman as she was walking her dog just before 10 a.m. on the 100 block of Dakota. The man demanded the woman she give him everything she had, and he said that if she didn't, he would kick her dog.
The woman handed him a bag and the suspect fled. Unbeknownst to the suspect, the bag she gave him contained her dog's feces.
The suspect is still on the loose. He's described as a white man, about 18 to 22 years of age, and about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds. He was wearing a black sweatshirt and blue jeans.
