Just minutes after CWBChicago last night told you about an armed robbery in Lincoln Park, a gunman robbed two more people in the same neighborhood, according to Chicago police.
A 24-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman told police they were on the 2100 block of North Lincoln Park West around 7:50 p.m. Tuesday when a man approached them. They said the man pulled a handgun from his pocket, collected their valuables, then ran from the scene.
Cops searched the area, but they did not find the offender.
A police department spokesperson said the robber is a black male in his mid-20’s who stands 6-feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds. The victims last saw him running northbound on Stockton drive while wearing a black Nike-brand hoodie, black pants, and a black skull cap.
Tuesday’s hold-up took place just a few blocks from where another robbery unfolded late Sunday.
In the earlier incident, a 31-year-old man said two offenders robbed him at gunpoint as he stood on the sidewalk in the 500 block of West Arlington around 11:55 p.m.
Sunday’s victim said the men who robbed him are both black and in their early 20’s. One is about 6-feet tall and wore a black leather coat over a black hoodie. The other wore all black clothing.
Area Central and Area North detectives are investigating the robberies.
