A woman has told police that she was tied up and robbed in her car under L tracks in the 1100 block of Roscoe this morning. No one is in custody and Area North detectives are investigating.

Officers responded to the scene at 4:15AM after residents heard a woman screaming for help in a nearby gangway.

The woman told police that the offender—described only as male, black, 5'9" tall, wearing a gray jacket and black hat—took her Samsung Galaxy Note 3, wallet, and car keys before fleeing the scene.

Few other details are available at this hour. The incident is currently recorded as a kidnaping. Case number is TBD.
