The 27-year-old victim told police that the offender approached her in the 900 block of West Argyle a little after 5 a.m. and displayed a handgun.

After punching her in the face, he jumped into her car and sped off southbound in the alley behind Sheridan, police said.

She described the offender as a short black man in his 30’s who was wearing a dark gray hoodie.
