Police are investigating the brazen armed robbery of a Lakeview doggy daycare center and pet supply shop this afternoon.
The gunman, armed with a silver semi-automatic handgun, walked into Bark By The Park, 2936 North Clark, just after 4:30 p.m.
He put the gun into the back of a female store worker and ordered her to open the register, police said. No one—and no doggies—were injured.
After securing the store’s cash, the man fled south on Clark Street.
He is described as black, in his 50’s, about 5’8” tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing a construction-type vest, glasses, and gray cargo shorts.
