CHICAGO (STMW) – A man and woman were robbed at gunpoint late Wednesday in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The incident occurred at 11:50 p.m. in the 500 block of West Fullerton Parkway as the victims were walking west, police said.

Two suspects approached them from behind and one of them grabbed the man and held a cutting instrument to his throat and said, “Don’t you f—— move,’’ according to police.

One of the suspects grabbed the woman and yanked her purse from her arm and both attackers fled westbound.

Officers saw a small cut on the man’s chin and he was treated on the scene by paramedics.

Belmont Area detectives are investigating.
