CHICAGO (STMW) — A South Side man was ordered held without bond after being caught hiding in a Loop tavern after unsuccessfully trying to nab an iPhone from a CTA customer early Saturday.

Christopher Dunn, 20, of the 6100 block of South Bishop Street, is charged with one count each of attempted robbery and battery, police said.

On Saturday, Dunn was ordered held without bond and a next court date was set for Dec. 28, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

Dunn is accused of attempting to rob a passenger of his iPhone on a Downtown CTA train about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety said.

The robbery was unsuccessful, and when the train stopped he fled into a bar in the 200 block of South Wabash Avenue, Baety said.

Witnesses pointed officers in the direction of Dunn, who was arrested a short time later, police said.

Belmont Area detectives investigated.
