CHICAGO — A 22-year-old woman was robbed and raped Tuesday in a Fulton Market apartment building’s lobby, police said.

At 5:30 p.m., the woman entered the lobby of the building in the 400 block of North Carpenter Street when a man followed her inside, according to a Chicago Police community alert.

Once inside the building’s vestibule, the man took out a knife and told the woman, “Give me everything,” police said.

After robbing the woman, the man sexually assaulted her, police said.

The man was black, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-9 with a medium build and short, black hair, police said. He wore a white Chicago Bulls jacket with red sleeves, blue jeans and black and white Air Jordan gym shoes.
