SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Robbery At Gunpoint, Belmont & Broadway

An off-duty Cook County State's Attorney investigator was the victim of an attempted armed robbery with a handgun at the bustling intersection of Belmont and Broadway at 1:55 this afternoon.

Witnesses say the offender confronted the victim and produced a handgun in the Walgreens parking lot, but he did not get any proceeds.

The victim lost the offender in a pursuit that went east on Belmont and then south on a side street.

The gunman is described as male, black, in his 40's, heavy-set, with some facial hair growth. He wore a ball cap, dark pants, and both a brown corduroy coat and a yellow hoodie. He was last seen running southbound on Cambridge Avenue.

Chicago Police Department case #HW480951.
