A woman was robbed at gunpoint and relieved of her purse around 5:40 a.m. on Sept. 3 in the 100 block of Superior Street, Oak Park police said.
Police said the victim was approached by a male between 20-30 years old who displayed a small black and silver semiautomatic handgun. The victim dropped her purse to the ground, police said, and the assailant picked it up and fled southbound. Estimated loss was $480.
The woman's cellphone was pinged near the 4800 block of West Erie Street in Chicago later that day, but the phone was not recovered and the investigation continues, said Oak Park Police Commander LaDon Reynolds.
