Man with mismatched gloves tried to rob OL Domino’s

  • Written by Bob Rakow

 An Oak Lawn pizzeria was burglarized early Saturday morning after a rock was thrown through the front window of the carry-out restaurant, police said.
  A security video shows a rock lying on the floor of Domino’s Pizza, 9022 S. Cicero Ave., at 1:21 a.m. A man wearing a hooded sweatshirt, track pants and gym shoes entered the restaurant through the broken window and jumped over the front counter, reports said.
  The man, who wore a white glove on his left hand and a red glove on his right hand, tried unsuccessfully to open the cash register with the register key, police said. He then jumped over the counter, picked up the rock and exited the store through the broken window, reports said.

  A delivery driver noticed the broken window several hours later when he arrived for work and contacted the store’s general manager. The last employee to leave the previous night told police that the register and touch screen were moved from their original location, police said.

Woman’s purse snatched in Oak Lawn

  • Written by Bob Rakow

 A woman was robbed in the parking lot of an Oak Lawn grocery store Dec. 21 when a man grabbed her purse, police said.
  The incident occurred at 1:35 p.m. at Jewel-Osco, 8801 S. Ridgeland Ave., when the 52-year-old woman was walking toward her car, according to reports.
  She said a man in a tan SUV motioned for her to approach his vehicle. When she arrived, the man reached his arm out of the driver’s side window and grabbed the purse, which contained $400 cash, police said.
  The man fled westbound through the parking lot. A witness ran toward the SUV and punched the rear driver’s window in an attempt to get him to stop. The SUV turned south onto Ridgeland Avenue.
  Approximately 30 minutes later, Alsip police reported a reckless driver matching the description of the SUV speeding north on Cicero Avenue. Oak Lawn police responded, positively identified the SUV and pursued it before terminating the chase, they said.
