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.

Suspect is sought in child abduction attempt in Heights

  The Cook County Sheriff’s Office on Monday afternoon made a public appeal to help identify and apprehend a man who attempted to abduct a 9-year-old girl in Palos Heights.
