CHICAGO — A woman was injured after she was attacked during a violent home invasion in Lincoln Park. Police said the incident happened around 9 p.m. Tuesday on the 400 block of West Fullerton Parkway when the woman heard a knock on her door. The 32-year-old told police that when she unlocked it, three men pushed their way inside her apartment, hit her over the head several times and pointed a gun at her. She said she was handcuffed, beaten, and her mouth taped. The men demanded to know where her money was, then ransacked the apartment and stole various items. When the men left, the woman went to a neighbors’ apartment and 911 was called. The woman was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where her condition was stabilized. Wednesday police released photos and detail descriptions of the alleged home invaders. One is described as a black male, 35-45 years old, 5 feet 4 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and wearing all black clothing.
