ACTION JACKSON: Gunmen Rob Lakeview Man, Get $20

Two men armed with semi-automatic handguns robbed a pedestrian in the neighborhood early today.

The victim told police that he was in the 3100 block of Racine at 4 o’clock this morning when a small, tan Toyota pulled up and both occupants produced handguns while demanding his valuables.

After getting “maybe $20” and the man’s wallet, the offenders sped north on Racine.

The victim, who sought help at a nearby 7-Eleven store, described his assailants as two black men white wearing tank tops and shorts. One of the gunmen wore eyeglasses. (CPD case HY383080)
