A Chicago man has avoided prison time after he tried to steal an iPad from an Evanston man.

Sean Thomas, 20, was sentenced to probation and fined after he pleaded guilty to robbery.

Police say the victim had posted his iPad for sale on craigslist. Thomas responded to the ad, but tried to run off with the device during the transaction.

The victim chased Thomas down, but was bit and stabbed in the process.
