A La Grange man was robbed at gunpoint by three men in the 1000 block of Erie Street at 4:32 a.m. on Nov. 14.

The Oak Park Police Department reports that the victim was in his vehicle, when three men pulled up in a White Dodge Charger. One man wearing a surgical mask and armed with a dark revolver exited the Charger, pointed the revolver at the victim's vehicle and ordered him to exit the vehicle.

The robber then said, "Where's the money?"

The La Grange man handed over cash and his cell phone. The gun-wielding robber ransacked the interior of the victim's vehicle, while a second man, also armed with a dark revolver, ordered the victim to get on the ground. A third man from the Charger stood by and watched.

The three robbers then returned to their vehicle and fled westbound on Erie Street. The estimated loss is $200. The police report gave little description of the three. Their heights ranged from 5-foot-7 to 6-foot-1.

Since there was an eyewitness to the crime, shouldn't we have a better physical description?
