North Center: Woman robbed at gunpoint in Aldi parking lot

A 26-year-old woman was robbed at gunpoint as she walked into a North Center grocery store on Thursday evening, police said. No one is in custody.

The victim was walking from her car when a gunman reportedly approached her in the parking lot of Aldi, 2431 West Montrose, around 6:40 p.m. Police said the man demanded the woman’s purse and then drove away in a blue sedan.

The offender is a white or Hispanic man with a tattoo on his face near the left eye who stands 5’6” to 5’9” tall, police said.
