Man Wanted for Attempted Robbery and Robbery

On Jan. 22, at approximately 4:34 p.m., police were dispatched to Close Knit at 1630 Orrington Ave., for an attempted armed robbery that had just occurred. The employee at the store, a 52 year-old female, told police that a man entered the store.  The man displayed an apparent handgun in his waistband while announcing, "open the cash register or I'll shoot." The woman did not comply and yelled at the man to get out. The man then fled the store, said Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department.

About 10 minutes later, at approximately 4:43 PM, police officers were dispatched to Thrift House at 920 Chicago Avenue for an armed robbery that had just occurred. The employee, a 47 year old female, said that a man entered the store and displayed an apparent handgun in his waistband while announcing, "give me all your money."  The woman gave the man approximately $330. The man fled the store, said the Commander.

The investigation revealed that it is likely the same suspect in both incidents, said the Commander.  The suspect is described as a male/black, 50-60+ years old, approximately 5'8" and thin build, said the Commander.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Evanston Police Department at (847) 866-5040 or utilize Text-A-Tip by texting CRIMES (274637) and entering EPDTIP in the message line, followed by the tip information.
