Drunken Armed Robber with a thick Irish brogue who told the clerk he wanted to go back to Ireland robs Northside C.V.S. Drugs


A CVS in the Horner Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side was held up early Monday by a man who said in a thick Irish brogue that he wanted to “go home to Ireland” police said.

Staffers at the CVS, 3944 N. Western Ave., told police the robber had been inside the store twice in the hours before the robbery and asked to use the washroom, police said.

But the third time he was wearing dark sunglasses and a hoodie over his head when he knocked on the door of the employee room and told them the men’s washroom was “backed up’’ about 3:45 a.m., according to police.

When a staffer went inside to check it out, the robber drew a handgun and ordered the man to get on his knees while he asked him how much money was in the store, police said.

The staffer said that he didn’t know, but told the robber it “wasn’t much.’’

As the robber was binding the staffer's mouth and hands with duct tape, he said in a thick Irish accent: “You looked liked like a nice guy. I don’t want to hurt anyone. I just want to go home to Ireland,’’ according to a police report.
