Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s neighborhood CVS Pharmacy was robbed this morning for the third time in 2015.
Police were called to the store, 4051 N. Lincoln, around 4 o’clock after a man pulled a knife on the cashier and made off with the cash drawer contents.
The victim described the offender as a 40-year-old white man, 5’5″ tall, 200 pounds, wearing an orange tee shirt and khaki shorts. The offender was last seen running eastbound from the store with about $200 cash.
That description closely resembles the offender in the February 17 robbery.
In that case, the offender entered the store at 5:15AM, brandished a knife or box cutter, pulled open the cash drawer, and fled with its contents. He was described as a white or Hispanic man, 5’3″ tall, and 180 pounds.
The store was also robbed at gunpoint on January 15. That robbery also occurred around 5 in the morning, but the suspect was described as a 21-year-old black man with puffy hair who was believed to have lived in the neighborhood.
