The offenders claimed to have guns when they jumped her and took her tan purse near Roscoe and Marshfield shortly after midnight on Friday, the woman said.

She described the offenders as two black men, both about 20-years-old and between 5’7″ and 5’9″ tall. They were dressed in all black clothing and they wore masks over their noses and mouths.

In another case, a Lincoln Park woman told police that she was jumped and robbed by three men near the intersection of Racine and Montana around 5 o’clock yesterday morning.

Witnesses said they saw the woman chasing the suspects down an alley after they took her purse and two duffel bags. Her efforts to catch the men were not successful, police said.

The offenders are described as three black men—two wearing all black clothing and the third wearing a burgundy hoodie.

About ten minutes after the mugging, a different caller reported seeing three men matching the robbers’ descriptions attempting to break into a Ford Explorer about two blocks from the robbery scene. Officers were unable to locate the suspects.
