The armed robbery of a Lakeview restaurant was one of a pair of robberies that have been reported in the past two weeks in the North Side neighborhood.

The latest incident happened at 10:50 a.m. on Thursday, when robbers armed with a handgun walked into a restaurant in the 1000-block of West Belmont and announced a robbery as they took money from the cash register, according to Chicago police.

A week and a half earlier, the suspects again had a handgun at 7:19 p.m. on Oct. 29 as they stopped a person on the street in the 900-block of West Grace Street and demanded their property, police said.

The robbers were described as two black men between 25 and 30 years old, between 5-foot-8 and 6-foot-1 and about 160 to 180 pounds, police said. Both had braided hair.

One of the men wore a black ski mask, black jacket, blue hooded sweatshirt and black jeans according to police. The other man wore an orange and red hooded sweatshirt, light-gray pants and white gym shoes.

Anyone with information about the robberies was asked to call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8263.
