The man was reportedly attacked at about 9 p.m. Friday.

A man was robbed of $200 in Charles Village after being wrestled to the ground.

According to a police report, a man was walking at about 9 p.m. on Friday in the 2700 block of Calvert Street and was approached by two robbers.

One of the robbers put the man in a headlock and forced him to the ground. As he was being forced down, the robber told him to "empty your pockets and give me your money."

The two robbers then took the man’s wallet containing a license, debit card and $200 before running east on 27th Street.

It would be really nice if the BPD would release descriptions of all these criminals so that those of us who keep our eyes open could maybe help find these low life thieves. Oh but wait, this is Baltimore and the police don't actually want our help. I forgot.

I totally agree with daygirl...we need descriptions of these low lifes. How will we get these animals off the street if descriptions are not released?
