Police: Robbery near NIU campus didn't happen

Man told police he filed a false report

DeKALB – A man who told police he was jumped by three men who stole his wallet and phone made it up, DeKalb police said.

The man initially told police that shortly after 1 a.m. Friday, three male suspects grabbed him, threw him down as he was walking on the sidewalk and took his wallet containing $40 in cash and his phone before running off.

He later admitted to filing a false report to police, according to an NIU Safety Bulletin.

“Police have determined that the alleged robbery is unfounded,” the bulletin said.
