Cops Seek Man, Woman For Uptown Convenience Store Robbery

CHICAGO (STMW) — Chicago police are searching for a man and woman accused of robbing an Uptown convenience store last Tuesday with a handgun.

At around 2:15 p.m. on March 8, the offenders entered a convenience store on the 5000 block of North Sheridan Road, according to a Police News Affairs press release.

The woman began playing Lottery tickets at the cash register, while the man went around the counter with a small handgun and pushed the cashier aside. The woman then reached over and grabbed the money that was on top of the counter, the release said.

Both offenders fled the scene northbound on foot, the release said.

The man is described as African-American, 6 feet tall, between 170 and 200 pounds with brown eyes, black hair and a medium complexion. He was wearing a black jacket and black pants, the release said.

The woman is African-American, 5-foot-three, 120 pounds with black hair and a tattoo on her neck. She was wearing a red and black hooded sweatshirt and tan pants, the release said.

Chicago Police are urging business owners in the area to make sure their surveillance cameras are working, and to contact the Belmont Area Robbery/Burglary/Theft Crimes Unit at (312) 744-8263 with any information on the identities of the two offenders.
