Men rob Evanston resident in parking garage

Two men robbed an Evanston resident in a parking garage Thursday evening.

The men approached the resident after he parked his car in a lot in the 700 block of Hinman Avenue, Parrott said. One man pushed the resident from behind and held him to the ground so that the other could take the resident’s wallet and cell phone. The robbers implied that they were carrying a gun, Parrott said.
