Three men, including one armed with a gun and another with a knife, robbed a man early Tuesday morning of his Apple iPhone and $70, said Evanston Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott.

The victim, a 26-year-old Chicago resident, was standing on the street with two friends when the robbery occurred at approximately 2:40 a.m. The three men were dressed in all black clothing and wore black masks. They fled immediately after obtaining the stolen goods.

The owner of a 2011 Hyundai says his vehicle was tampered with sometime between Sunday afternoon and 7 p.m. Monday.

The car was parked in an apartment building garage on the 400 block of Howard Street, Parrott said. In addition to keying the car’s trunk, an unknown person forced open the gas cap and poured sugar in the gas tank.
