    After the robbery, the men fled the area and headed south, according to Chicago police. Evanston police attempeted to stop the vehicle, but they were eluded, they said.

    In Chicago, the suspects abandoned their vehicle and ran off, throwing off some of their clothing to make it harder for police to recognize them. The vehicle was last seen in the 3000 block of West Jerome Avenue. 

    It's not immediately clear what the men took from the Evanston home.
