CHICAGO (STMW) – Three youngsters, one of whom was armed with a BB gun, were arrested after allegedly stealing a pizza from a woman walking to her Uptown neighborhood home Saturday night.
The victim called police about 8:20 p.m. from the 1200 block of West Leland Avenue and told officers she was robbed at gunpoint and her pizza was taken.
The victim, who is in her 50s, told officers three “young juveniles’’ confronted her, including one who had what appeared to be a handgun at his side, according to a Belmont District police lieutenant.
“They said: ‘Give us your pizza,’’’ the lieutenant said. She complied and ran home and called police.
The victim gave a description of the three and police arrested them at 1007 W. Leland Ave. about 8:45 p.m.
They did not fire the BB gun and she was not harmed, the lieutenant said.
The BB gun was recovered.
Charges were not available as of Sunday afternoon.
