July 16, 2014 - Oak Park Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying as many as four men who may have been involved in an armed robbery Monday afternoon in the 200 block of Clinton Avenue.
The victim reported that at about 4:30 p.m. he was confronted as he exited the rear of his residence by two men who took his cell phone and wallet, then demanded the personal identification number (PIN) for his bank debit card.
One of the offenders apparently gave the card and information to an accomplice or accomplices who attempted to make ATM withdrawals at Tasty Dog, 708 Lake St., and 7-11, 661 South Blvd., while the victim was held at gunpoint for several minutes. How much money was withdrawn has not yet been established.
The victim described his assailants as follows:
- African-American male in his 20s, about five feet, nine inches tall, with a medium build, medium complexion and hair on his chin. He was wearing a white baseball hat with a red brim and Chicago written on the front, white tee shirt, gray sweat pants, black and neon green gym shoes, and a silver chain with a cross.
- African-American male in this 20s, about six feet tall, with a thin build, dark complexion and bushy hair. He was wearing a white tee shirt and black pants.
While the victim did not observe any accomplices, Police gathered surveillance video from one ATM that may be related to the robbery.
Police were at the site of the incident in one minute and 50 seconds following the report, but the offenders had fled the scene.
