Lincoln Park couple targeted in Friday night home invasion, Chicago police say

Chicago police are investigating a home invasion that unfolded in Lincoln Park on Friday night.

Two men forced their way through the front door of a condo unit in the 2700 block of North Kenmore around 10:54 p.m., according to CPD. Once inside, the offenders confronted a 34-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man, demanding that the victims turn over their valuables, a police spokesperson said.

The men fled the scene after stealing property from the victims, neither of whom was injured.

About 45 minutes after the crime, police discovered one of the victims’ phones in an alley near the intersection of Halsted and Oakdale in Lakeview. According to investigators on the scene, a condo upstairs from the home invasion site was also burglarized.

According to a CPD report, the home invasion suspects were two Black males. One had short dreadlocks, stood 5’10” to 6-feet tall, and wore a white jacket with eyeglasses.

Detectives from Area Three are handling the investigation.
