A gunman remains on the loose after robbing two Lincoln Park convenience stores in about an hour Thursday night. The offender’s description closely matches that of a man who robbed a third convenience store and a late night taco stand in Lincoln Park over the past two weeks.

Around 10:20 last night, an armed man walked into the 7-Eleven at 2710 North Lincoln and announced a robbery. He was last seen running westbound on Schubert, police said.

Then, around 11:20 p.m., a similar-looking man armed with a gun robbed the 7-Eleven at 2264 North Clark Street.

In both cases, the gunman was described as black, about 5’10” tall, with a goatee. He wore a black hoodie and dark jeans.

On Saturday, detectives issued a community alert after an armed gunman robbed a Halsted Street taco shop and a 7-Eleven at 2600 North Lincoln over the course of two weeks. Authorities have not yet connected last night’s hold-ups to the man in the alert.

The alert describes the suspect as a black man between 28- and 39-years-old who stands 5’4” to 5’9” tall and weighs 180-210 pounds. He has a black beard and has been seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with black pants and a black jacket with white lettering on the front and back.

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets.
