CHICAGO — The Chicago Police Department sent out a community alert Sunday to businesses on the City’s Northwest Side notifying them of several armed robberies that happened during business hours.
Police said two offenders robbed Sarpino’s Pizzeria and Liqoures La Caridad in Logan Square and Grand Food and Liquor in Belmont Cragin over the last two weeks.
