CHICAGO — An "elderly gentleman" was beaten and robbed in Lincoln Park early Sunday, according to officials at DePaul University.
The man was walking in the 900 block of West Belden Avenue about 5:45 a.m. when someone walked up to him and demanded his belongings, the school said in a safety alert.
The attacker struck the man and took his wallet before jumping into a white SUV and driving east on Belden. A DePaul student who saw the incident yelled for help, the school said, which may have caused the attacker to leave.
Chicago police have classified the incident as an aggravated robbery.
School officials ask anyone with information to call 773-325-7777.
