An Oak Park woman was robbed at gunpoint by two men in black ski masks as she walked along the 900 block of West Lake Street on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

The woman was on Lake Street at about 8:10 p.m., when two men pulled up in an older model black Oldsmobile sedan, possibly with a gray top.

The two men exited the vehicle and displayed a handgun. They demanded her belongings, and the victim complied, handing over her purse and cell phone.

The two men then got back in their car and headed eastbound on Lake and northbound on Kenilworth.

The estimated loss is $1,416.

The two men were described as black and wearing dark-colored hoodies and dark pants. The first robber was about 5-foot-11 with a medium build. His accomplice was described as 5-foot-5 and with a thin build.
