Three people walking in Wilder Park were confronted by two men with a gun Tuesday evening, Elmhurst police said.
Police responded to the park after receiving a call for an attempted armed robbery at about 8 p.m. Tuesday. The three victims told police that two black men in their late teens approached them. One of them took out a silver handgun, cocked it and placed it to one victim's head. The three told police that when the man cocked the gun, it sounded like it was made out of plastic, so they continued walking.
They said the suspects ran away, toward Immaculate Conception High School. Police set up a perimeter and conducted a K-9 search, but the suspects were not found.
