Police have released a composite sketch of a man who followed two people into their garages Tuesday afternoon in southwest suburban Oak Lawn and stole their jewelry at gunpoint.

The man, thought be between 25 and 35, showed a black handgun and took off in a large, dark red SUV, police said.

He was described as black, about 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt with writing across the front.
