Oak Lawn crime watch leader Nancy Weinberger reports in an email:
Last night (Jan. 29) a little after 9 p.m. in the 4500 block of Gilbert there was a robbery/assault. The victims were unloading their car after coming home from dinner. They were assaulted and robbed at gunpoint by two young blacks … one male, one female, skinny and probably 18-20 years old. The suspects were walking but there was another person (also black) waiting for them in a car nearby and they escaped. It was an early 2000s, dark-colored Crown Victoria or Grand Marquis. The female had long, braided, ponytail hair. The victim suspects they were on drugs. The police tried to locate them using the Find my Phone app on the stolen phone but they got away.
This is information I was provided by one of the victims via email. The police report number I was given is 24512-Z.
As of Monday afternoon the report had not been posted on DPD’s website, and a department spokesperson couldn’t immediately be reached. Stay tuned to Instant Tea for updates.
UPDATE: Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse, a spokesman for DPD, said police have no suspects and have made no arrests.
