Evanston man robbed at gunpoint

Two men robbed a 54-year-old man at gunpoint Wednesday night.

The man was leaving his apartment in the 300 block of Sherman Avenue just after 9 p.m. when the pair approached him, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. One man pointed a gun at the Evanston resident and another grabbed him from behind, threw him to the ground and stole his backpack and $80 from his pocket.

Both men fled the scene on foot. The 54-year-old man was not injured.
