The police today released photos related to a robbery on Kavanaugh Wednesday night that I mentioned on last night's open line, the fifth robbery of a pedestrian in Hillcrest in recent weeks.

The photos were made at the Raceway station on South University, where police said the man attempted to use the robbery victims' credit cards to buy gas. The van photographed outside the station matches the description of the getaway vehicle used in the robbery near Pulaski Heights Baptist Church.

Natalie Elliott and Nicholas Pippins, both 26, were robbed near Cedar about 10:20 p.m. The robber took her purse and his backpack. Each lost a phone. They said the man asked the time as he walked past them, then turned and pulled a gun. He ran to a silver van parked on Woodlawn after the robbery.

    Silence so far from Republican politicians such as Leslie Rutledge on achievement of their long-stated dream, death to the Affordable Care Act. Could that be because most people now understand what a good thing President Obama did with its passage? Update: Rutledge applauds and offers empty promise of coverage.
