An armed robbery attempt in Lincoln Square turned into a home invasion and kidnapping case after the victims told the offender that they didn’t have any money to give him, according to a new community alert from Chicago police.
It happened around 12:10 a.m. on July 23 in the 4600 block of North Campbell.
Police said the robber displayed a silver handgun and demanded money from the victims. But they showed him that they didn’t have any cash.
He then ordered them into their home and continued to demand cash, which they still didn’t have, according to police.
So, the robber forced the family to get into their car and drive to an ATM. There, he forced them to withdraw money, which he took. They all returned to the victims’ home, and the offender fled on foot, police said.
According to the CPD community alert, the suspect is a man of an unknown race, between the ages of 25 and 27. He was dressed in a black ski mask and a white shirt.
Anyone with information about the crime should call Area Three detectives at 312-744-8263 and ask to speak with Case JF-328050.
