A woman reported that two men tried to rob her at gunpoint near the Sheridan Red Line station on Sunday afternoon, but the offenders left empty-handed because she didn’t have anything they wanted.
Police said the woman was just outside the station around 12:45 p.m. when two men approached her and displayed a handgun. The men demanded valuables from the woman, but they walked away after determining that she was not carrying anything worth stealing.
Both would-be robbers fled east from the station.
The victim said they were two black men with dreadlocks between 18- and 23-years-old who stand 5’8” to 5’11” tall. One wore a white t-shirt with shorts, the other wore a red t-shirt bearing a graphic design.
