Without naming specific businesses, the alert warns of a Hispanic male gunman between 25- and 45-years-old, and weighing 180- to 230 pounds who robbed two stores in the 6100 block of North Broadway on Saturday in addition to the Walgreens and Jewel in our area.
A law enforcement source identified the targeted Edgewater businesses as the CVS Pharmacy at 6150 North Broadway and the Walgreens at 6121 North Broadway. The hold-ups occurred at 4:19 a.m. and 7:40 p.m. respectively.
While the alert says the man wore a tan Carhartt-style jacket during the hold-ups, CWB Chicago learned independently that three of the four victims said he was wearing a blue and black jacket.
At least two victims said the man has a mustache.
During the hold-ups in our area, witnesses said the gunman fled in a white four-door vehicle, possibly a Maxima or Altima, that was driven by another person.
Anyone with information about the offender is asked to call Area North investigators at 312-744-8263.
