Home invaders chase couple from Lincoln Park home, police say

A Lincoln Park couple ran out of their residence after two home invaders broke through their back door early Sunday, police said.

The 31-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were inside their home on the 2500 block of North Marshfield when two offenders forced their way inside around 2:01 a.m., Officer Jose Lemus-Cortez said.

The couple ran out the front door, but one of the intruders caught up with the woman and forced her to the ground while demanding money, said Lemus-Cortez. She told him they didn’t have money, and the offenders escaped in a white SUV.

While the suspects did not get money, they did get away with property from inside the home, according to a CPD report.

Police searched the area for two Hispanic men wearing black masks and dark clothing, but came up empty-handed. The offenders’ SUV may be a Mercedes, according to a witness.

Area Three detectives are investigating.
