A Lakeview woman was robbed of her phone as she enjoyed some “me time” at Starbucks, 3045 North Greenview, on Thursday.
The victim was seated at the coffee shop around 12:10 p.m. when a man grabbed her phone, then pulled the woman from her seat as they wrestled for control of the device.
She told police that the man and an accomplice jumped into a gray Infiniti SUV that fled south on Greenview. Police later spotted the vehicle and the suspects near a Target store in the 2600 block of North Clark, but the crew managed to slide away again. Witnesses reported seeing the car entering southbound Lake Shore Drive at a high rate of speed around 12:30 p.m.
Both robbers were described as black men wearing camouflage hoodies that have snake-like emblems on the side.
