A man was robbed at gunpoint in the 500 block of South Scoville Avenue at 9:55 p.m. on Feb. 8, according to the Oak Park Police Department.

The victim was walking southbound on Scoville, near the Adams intersection, when a white Lexus pulled up and a man stepped out of the driver's side door. He displayed a silver handgun and demanded the man's possessions.

The victim handed over his wallet, which contained credit cards and $6, a pair of Monster DNA headphones and a black iPhone 6S. The offender re-entered his vehicle and headed southbound on Scoville Avenue. The estimated loss is $525.

The offender was described as a black man between the ages of 20 and 25, 5-foot-10, with a thin build and wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants.
