Man Charged With Robbing Couple Near Wrigley Field

Detectives have tracked down the man responsible for robbing a couple near Wrigley Field on September 10, prosecutors say.

22-year-old Uptown resident Jeff Sarfo was arrested at his home in the 800 block of West Belle Plaine at 7:45 p.m. Sunday. Records show Sarfo previously received a 3-year prison sentence for robbing a victim at the Addison Red Line station on July 27, 2012. Police say he is a documented gang member.

Around 5:10 a.m. on September 10, Sarfo approached a Lakeview couple outside of their home in the 1200 block of West Waveland, according to prosecutors. He allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded their valuables before running away. The victims identified Sarfo in a photo array, according to police.

Sarfo is charged with two counts of Class X felony armed robbery with a firearm. A judge ordered him held without bond.

Detectives previously connected the Waveland robbery with five others in a community alert, but Sarfo has not yet been charged with any other cases.
