Lincoln Park convenience store robbed twice this week

A Lincoln Park convenience store has been robbed twice in less than a week, according to Chicago police. No one is in custody.

Around 3:30 a.m. on August 11th, a masked man walked into the 7-Eleven store at 1349 West Fullerton and implied that he had a handgun. The offender took money from the register as well as cigarettes before running away southbound on Wayne Avenue, according to the store clerk. Police said the robber was black, about 5’7” tall, and 120 pounds. He was wearing all black and carried a black garbage bag.

Then, just after 1 p.m. on Friday, a man entered the same store, displayed a handgun in a plastic bag, and gave the clerk a note that demanded cash according to police. After collecting the store’s money, the man ran westbound on Fullerton Avenue. He was described as a mixed-race man with light skin who is in his 30’s. He wore a black baseball hat with white writing on the front, a black do-rag under the hat, a white t-shirt, black pants, and black gym shoes.
