An off-duty Chicago police officer was robbed of his service weapon at gunpoint on the South Side, officials said.
The officer was sitting in the driver’s seat of his car about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, near 91st Street and Martin Luther King Drive, when two men approached on each side of the car, police said.
The man on the driver’s side tapped on the window and displayed a gun and opened the door. He told the other man, who had opened the passenger door, “I think he’s a cop, check for a gun," according to police.
The officer's gun, phone and wallet were stolen, police said. The officer wasn’t injured.
Police searched the area but no one was in custody.
