Video shows man attacking and robbing woman in West Loop; CPD needs help tracking the offender down

A man armed with a screwdriver attacked and robbed a woman as she entered her West Loop residence, then stole her car, according to Chicago police. CPD released a video of the attack on November 12, but the crime occurred on September 24.

The video footage shows the woman entered her building in the 1500 block of West Monroe around 7:28 p.m. The offender walked in behind her before the door closed.

A confrontation unfolded partly off-camera before the incident turned violent.

After getting the woman’s vehicle keys, he drove away with her 2022 Jeep, which had Colorado license plates, according to Chicago police records.

Tips about the case can be shared with Area Three detectives at 312-744-8261 or anonymously at www.cpdtip.com. The CPD report number is JF-409311.
