A North Side neighborhood grocery store was robbed at gunpoint, leaving the clerk nearly traumatized.

At approximately 11:19 p.m., an armed robbery was reported at 521 West Diversey Parkway in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The address belongs to a business called The Market Place Food Store.

The three black men, one armed with a gun, stole money from a safe and $50 to $60 worth of coins from the grocer, said police.

According to officials, the store clerk was so shaken by the experience, investigators could barely get a description of the offenders.

So far, all I know is that the crooks were wearing all dark, or possibly dark green clothing.

The suspects were last seen running eastbound on Diversey.

A witness reportedly saw the men getting into a gold-colored car. 

If you have any information on this crime, please contact the police.
