Daily News: Everyday Criminal

Philadelphia Daily News profiles serial offender.

When nightfall arrives, police say, Kevin L. Johnson drifts through North Philly high on angel dust until he zeroes in on someone walking to a neighborhood store.

With little warning, Johnson, 20, approaches his target, mumbles nonsensically and then makes his demand: "Give it up, old head."

Since Oct. 6, cops say, Johnson has tried to rob eight people, and has shot five men who ran away from him in terror. Cops say Johnson chased and shot at a sixth man who fled but missed his moving target.

During his current robbery spree, he has tried to hold someone up every day for the past week, except for Wednesday, Brown said .
