CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man wielding a butcher knife robbed a woman in a Jewel grocery parking lot Thursday afternoon in southwest suburban Woodridge.

The woman had just finished loading groceries into her vehicle about 1 p.m. outside the Jewel at 2317 W. 75th St. in Woodridge when a man with a large butcher knife got into the passenger seat, according to a statement from police.

The woman’s children—an 18-month-old and a 3-year-old—were also in the car when the man took her cell phone and money, police said.

He then told her to drive to her bank before he got out of the car near Boughton and Naperville roads, according to police.

He was described as a man about 20, 5-foot-10 with a thin build. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with a scarf over his face during the attack, police said.

Anyone with information should call Woodridge police at (630) 719-4735.
