No charges have been filed.
While the victims reported that the three gunmen emerged from a dark-colored SUV, a source said that the vehicle stopped last night was a 4-door sedan. Police impounded the vehicle for forensic testing.
The off-duty Chicago cop and a female companion were confronted by three armed men around 9:25 PM Saturday in the 3100 block of North Ravenswood, police said.
Even after the off-duty cop identified himself as a police officer, the offenders proceeded with the robbery and escaped with the officer's weapon, police star, and wallet. They also took a wallet from the woman who was with the officer.
The victim's star was recovered nearby and has been tested for the the presence of the offenders' fingerprints and DNA, a source said.
All three offenders, described as black males wearing dark clothing and hoodies, were armed, the officer said.
