Chicago police today issued images of a man they want to speak with in connection with a January home invasion in Lakeview.

Three offenders armed with handguns entered the home on the 1300 block of West Fletcher around 4 a.m. on Jan. 4 and robbed four men who were inside, police said.

The man seen in images released today used one of the victims’ debit cards near the 6700 block of South Stony Island shortly after the crime, according to a CPD bulletin.

CWBChicago reported on Jan. 5 that two men, ages 23 and 24, told police that the offenders entered their home after a friend stepped out to go to a nearby convenience store. 

The offenders took two ATM cards and demanded the PINs before they left. They then withdrew a total of $1,300 from the victims’ accounts, a police spokesperson said in January. A television and electronics were also taken in the home invasion.

Anyone with information about the man in the above images can contact Area North detectives at 312-744-8263 about case JD-104232.
