A Northwest Side man is accused of attempting to rob his elderly uncle at gunpoint.
The 85-year-old victim reported the crime to police in November of last year, saying that Rashaan Fontelroy, 20, pointed a gun at him and demanded money.
The man told police he woke up to someone knocking on his bedroom window, then found his "great, great-nephew" asking for "hundreds," an arrest warrant affidavit stated.
The victim said when he told him he didn't have any money, Fontelroy left. About an hour later, though, he again woke up to knocking on his window.
The victim said this time, he found a masked man with a gun outside his door, the affidavit stated.
That gunman also demanded money, but the victim again told him that he didn't have any, the affidavit stated.
The victim also said that the gunman told him his name was Robert, the name of the suspect's brother, but the victim was able to tell that it actually was Fontelroy behind the mask, the affidavit stated.
Police obtained an arrest warrant for Fontelroy and took him into custody Friday.
