Two men robbed a female motorist at gunpoint in the 500 block of North Cuyler Avenue at 7:51 p.m. on June 20, as she parked her vehicle, Oak Park police have reported.

The victim, whose age was not given in the police report, was sitting in her vehicle when one of the men reportedly pointed a silver gun at her and said, "Do no scream, just give me the money."

He then took the victim's black North Face purse, which contained an iPhone 7 and $20, according to police. The estimated loss is $570.

The offender and his accomplice then fled the scene in a brown 2012 Chevy Malibu. That vehicle was later discovered unoccupied in an abandoned lot in the 800 block of Parkside in Elmhurst, police said.

The Malibu was originally reported stolen out of Chicago on June 17.
