Lakeview man robbed near Diversey Brown Line station

A Lakeview man had a rifle and a handgun placed to his head by two robbers who confronted him on a sidewalk near the Diversey Brown Line station Tuesday night, according to a CPD report. No arrests have been made.

The 24-year-old was walking on the 900 block of West Diversey when two men got out of a dark-colored SUV with guns around 11:20 p.m., CPD spokesperson Kellie Bartoli said. One put the business end of an assault-style rifle to his head while the other aimed a handgun at him. Then, they demanded his valuables.

After getting his wallet, phone, and keys, the men took off in the SUV, which may have Texas license plates, according to a report.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
