CHICAGO — Police have released photos of four people that they say attacked and robbed a man in Streeterville on Sunday night.

About 8 p.m., the victim was walking in the 700 block of North Fairbanks Court when a group of people came up to him and one of them punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground, police said.
