Overnight home invasion reported in Lincoln Park

Chicago police are investigating a home invasion reported in Lincoln Park early Sunday.

It occurred around 1:34 a.m. in the 1500 block of West Altgeld. A 25-year-old who lives in the home told police that a stranger entered their home, displayed a gun, and took property from inside the house, a CPD spokesperson said. No injuries were reported.

The victim described the robber as a Black man who was 5’4″ to 5’9″ tall and weighed 140 to 180 pounds. He wore a black mask, black jacket, and black pants and escaped in a red car.

Police did not say how the intruder managed to enter the home, a single-family residence that last sold for about $1.5 million.
