Woman tied up, robbed during Lakeview home invasion

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Lakeview woman claimed she was tied up during a home invasion Sunday.

Police said a man kicked open the back door of a second floor apartment near George Street and Mildred Avenue late Sunday afternoon.

According to neighbors, the man used tape and cord to tie up the 24-year-old woman who lives in the apartment. The robber then ransacked the apartment.

The robber got away with the woman's keys and drove off in her car. He also took her cell phone and laptop.

The victim was able to break free after the robber fled and knocked on a neighbor's door for help.

Several neighbors said they are now concerned about their own safety because it is a busy neighborhood with little crime.
