Police say four suspects forced their way into a home near Waukegan Monday evening and robbed two women at knifepoint inside the residence.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded around 5:15 p.m. Monday to the 35600 block of North Green Bay Road in unincorporated Waukegan for a home invasion.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located two adult women who had been the victims of a robbery inside their home, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Christopher Covelli.
A preliminary investigation shows four men wearing face masks and gloves entered the home and demanded money from the women, Covelli said.
One of the men took a kitchen knife and forced money from one of the victims.
The four offenders then fled to a vehicle in the vicinity and left the area. Both women were uninjured in the incident.
Sheriff’s deputies and detectives continue to actively investigate. They are seeking video surveillance and speaking with potential witnesses, Covelli said.
There is no current description of the offenders or getaway vehicle.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 847-377-4000.
