Apparently, a man can't just count his money in peace on a park bench at night

Transit Police report a man was sitting on a park bench in the Southwest Corridor near Ruggles around 9:40 p.m. on Tuesday when another man swooped in and " forcefully grabbed his money and fled."

Police report the victim wasn't putting up with that sort of nonsense and ran after the money grabber. And caught up with him in the Ruggles lower busway, where other people noticed the two getting into what appeared to be a rather heated argument and called police.

Michael Vandenbroeke, 29, of Hyde Park, was arrested on a charge of unarmed robbery, police say.

Innocent, etc.
