Thief snatches woman's phone inside library, runs away | Crime
A 24-year-old Evansville woman says she was robbed of her cell phone inside the Oaklyn Drive branch of the Evansville Public Library Monday.
Police say the woman told them she'd been inside the library reading for about an hour with the suspect sitting behind her the entire time.
Upon packing her belongings up to leave, she says he lunged forward, grabbing her phone and rushing out a nearby fire exit, setting off the alarm.
The suspect ran into a wooded area nearby. Library personnel say he wasn't a regular patron and they weren't able to provide the suspect's name. There is no surveillance video available.
