Editor’s note: About 24 hours after releasing these images and descriptions, CPD issued a correction. The suspect in red is a woman, not a man, the department said. This story has been updated to reflect the new information.
Police released images Wednesday night of three suspects who allegedly tied up, beat, and robbed a woman during an armed home invasion on Tuesday evening in Lincoln Park.
The offenders forced their way into the 32-year-old woman’s apartment at 420 West Fullerton around 9 p.m. while armed with handguns, according to police. She said the home invaders restrained her and held her at gunpoint while demanding “the money.”
Police said they collected cash and electronics before leaving. The woman freed herself and sought help from a neighbor who called 911.
An ambulance crew transported the woman to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for treatment. She was reportedly discharged on Wednesday.
Wednesday’s release of surveillance images came with updated descriptions of the alleged offenders:
- male, 35 to 45-year-old, 5’4” to 5’9” tall, all black clothing
- male, 21 to 28-years-old, thin, wearing a white long sleeve shirt with light-colored pants
- female, 26 to 28-years-old, 5’6” to 5’9” and wearing a red scarf or hoodie with a black coat. Her hair is shaved on the sides with braids on top.
Information about the individuals seen in the images may be shared with Area North detectives at 312-744-8263. Refer to case number JC-465373.
