Unlucky day: Police say this guy stole lottery tickets from a Stillwell Avenue deli and threatened the clerk on March 16.

Officials are describing the assailant as an 18-year-old man standing 6-feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark red, waist-length jacket, police said.
