A teenage couple were robbed at gunpoint Sunday night in Oak Forest, police said.
An 18-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl were sitting in a parked car at 149th Street and Laramie Avenue when two men approached about 9 p.m., Oak Forest police Sgt. Alexander Curlee said Monday.
“It was a ruse type of thing. ‘Do you have a light?’ Something to that effect. They then said, ‘This is a robbery’ and robbed them at gunpoint,” Curlee said.
Wallets and cell phones were stolen, Curlee said, and the men fled on foot.
“One of them lost a shoe,” Curlee said.
The boy and girl were not injured, Curlee said.
