Police are seeking two men involved in an armed robbery last week in Fernwood on the South Side.

About 10 a.m. May 13 in the 10200 block of South Wentworth Avenue, two males came up behind two people doing plumbing work in a homeowner’s yard, Chicago police said.

One male put a 9mm handgun against a person’s back, telling them to relax and put their hands up, police said. The two males went through the people’s pockets taking money and personal items.

The males are described as 18 to 20 years old, police said. One was wearing a red and blue Chicago Cubs sweatshirt and has a 9mm handgun with an extended clip. The other was wearing a dark blue hoodie.

Anyone with information should contact Area South detectives at 312-747-8273.
