CHICAGO, IL – One of multiple victims of a home invasion near the city’s Pullman neighborhood on Sunday afternoon was able to escape and run to the police station to report the crime as it occurred. Police responded immediately and were able to catch three suspects, two of which have charges pending according to a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
A 36-year-old man was unloading his car in the 2300 block of East 104th Street around 4:15 p.m. when he was approached by two men showing a handgun. While the victim was able to run away from the armed men, they both entered the victim’s home where four women were already inside.
A police media notification says the suspects told all the women to lie face down on the floor in the front room of the home. One of the women escaped.
The male victim ran into the 4th District police station to report the crime. While a police car was taking him back to the location, the victim identified the suspects in a car headed away from the scene.
Three people were arrested, one having been released later without charges. Charges were still pending against the other two suspects as of late Monday morning.
