MONEYBALL: Gunman Robs Cubs Parking Attendant

A Chicago Cubs parking lot attendant was robbed of the lot’s cash receipts around 1:30PM yesterday by a man who flashed a blue steel handgun.
According to officers, a witness to the robbery chased the gunman north from the Irving Park Road and Seminary lot, but lost the offender a couple of blocks later near Sheridan and Buena.
Witnesses say the offender was a male, black, 24 to 30 years old, tall, thin with a low haircut and facial hair on his chin. He wore camouflage pants, a white t-shirt, and had something tied around his waist–possibly an army-style jacket.
Chicago Police Department case #HW407475.
