Community Alert: Police Seek Man Who Mugged Elderly Woman in Truman Square

 Be on the lookout!

On May 8, an elderly woman was getting out of her car on the 4700 block of Winthrop around 3:30pm. She was approached by a man who asked her for directions, then pepper-sprayed her and took her purse.

He was later seen trying to use her credit cards at a gas station where these pictures were taken on the surveillance camera.

He is described as a black male, 40-45 years of age, 6' to 6'3", with a slender build.  He was observed observed exiting a black sedan, possibly a Dodge Avenger.

If you have any information that can help identify him, please contact the Area North Detectives at (312) 744-8263.
