The treacherous black ice that covered area sidewalks Sunday evening was no match for the even more treacherous stretch of road we call “Helmont.”
Despite neck-snapping icy sidewalks that threatened to hamper his getaway, a man brandished scissors to rob the Subway sandwich shop at 1020 Belmont around 11:15PM.
Police say the offender was last seen heading toward the Belmont CTA station with the restaurant’s cash.
The robber is described as a white man, 25 to 30 years old, wearing a black North Face jacket with its hood pulled up. (CPD case HY144771)
Lincoln Park Robbery
Four to five men jumped a victim from behind and stole his black iPhone 5s near Halsted and Wrightwood early Sunday morning, according to a police report.
The male victim told police that the offenders—all Hispanic men in their late 20’s—attacked him shortly before 5AM. No arrests were made.
