An apartment robbery occurred early this morning between 5:15 and 5:30 a.m. at a residence between Fullerton Avenue and Armitage Avenue off of Central Park Avenue, according to police reports. Logan Square resident Nick Antonopoulos, who has lived in the neighborhood for six months, said he and his roommate woke up to missing valuables of at least $7,000 from their apartment. Antonopoulos said his roommate was even missing some tobacco. He then noticed a front middle window was open and checked surveillance footage from his building’s porch camera.
That’s when he noticed an offender on tape, timestamped around 5:15 a.m. The man stood on the porch briefly, then sat down on one of the chairs, looked around and then went to the side of the building and managed to break into the apartment via a middle front window. Video stills show he came out shortly after with bags and items in his hands.
“He was in and out in 15 minutes,” Antonopoulos said.
From the surveillance video, the offender looks to be hispanic with a shaved head, a dark hoodie
A Chicago Police Spokesperson confirmed the incident and said that detectives are looking into the case. There were no other reported incidents in the area, the spokesperson said.
Antonopoulos also said that his neighbor’s catalytic converter was stolen from his car last night, suggesting both incidents could be related.
Anyone with information on the suspect should call CPD’s District 14 at (312) 744–8290.
