Sur­veil­lance photo

A man de­mand­ing money ter­ror­ized a 45-year-old Ox­ford Circle wo­man on June 22, for­cing her to call a friend to bring him cash to buy her free­dom.

Po­lice said the man at­tacked the wo­man as she was walk­ing in­to her apart­ment on the 6000 block of the Roosevelt Boulevard at about 10 p.m. He threatened her and took her jew­elry. 

The at­tack­er then forced his vic­tim to call someone to bring him money. He forced her in­to her vehicle and drove away, only to re­turn to meet the wo­man’s friend. When the friend handed over the cash, the at­tack­er fled with the vic­tim still in­side the car. He let her out a block away and drove off.

The at­tack­er is His­pan­ic and about 20 years old. He stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and has a mus­cu­lar build. He was wear­ing a gray or green shirt around his face.
