Oak Lawn police have released photos of three people wanted for forcing their way into an elderly woman’s home at gunpoint Tuesday.
A woman pretending to sell candy rang the woman’s door around 6 p.m. in the 4600 block of West 105th Place, police said.
As she answered, a man with a handgun forced his way into the home and knocked the victim to the ground, holding her at gunpoint, police said. He was wearing a white T-shirt over a blue hoodie.
The woman and another man then ransacked the home and drove off in a waiting white Kia Optima driven by a fourth person, police said. They drove west on 105th Place toward Cicero Avenue.
The woman suffered minor injuries.
