Man posing as federal agent robs man on South Side
For the third time this month, Chicago police report someone being robbed by a man posing as a federal agent.
The latest incident happened around 11 a.m. Saturday in the 7000 block of South Justine in Englewood.
Police say in each case, the imposter, driving a silver SUV, approached victims and identified himself as “agent” or “Officer Franklin.”
He ordered Saturday’s victim, a 41-year-old man, to get into his car as part of a police investigation, then demanded cash before allowing him to leave unharmed.
