Police are investigating two robberies in our area this morning. No one is in custody.

Most recently, two men tried to rob a woman on the street near Wrigley Field.

The men approached her near Waveland and Sheffield around 5:30 a.m., announced a robbery, and implied that they had a handgun, the woman said.

She opted to run from the men and called police from the Starbucks at Addison and Sheffield.

The woman said both offenders are black men in their late teens or early 20’s. They stand between 5’7” and 5’11” tall. Both wore dark clothing and were last seen heading northbound on Sheffield, according to the victim.
