Woman reports B-Line Trail robbery

At approximately 3:30 p.m. Monday, a 22-year-old female reported being robbed on the B-Line Trail, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Joe Crider said.

The female was reportedly walking on the B-Line Trail near Second and Morton streets when she was approached by a white male. The man allegedly stood in front of her, blocking her way, and demanded money from her, according to the police report.

Police said that the victim reported that the man grabbed her and shook her violently. The victim handed the man an undisclosed amount of cash and walked to South Rogers Street to call the police, Crider said.

She described the perpetrator as a white male, having a thin build with long white hair in a ponytail, as well as a long beard described as bushy, and wearing a camo shirt and blue jeans. The person the victim described was characterized as homeless, Crider said.

Anyone with information on the case is being asked to contact detectives at 812-349-3318.
