BUS-TED: Man Charged With Armed Robbery Aboard CTA Bus

A Kimar 911 steel 8 millimeter blank gun like the one
Hernandez is accused of brandishing.
A 20-year-old Portage Park man has been charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault to a transit employee in connection with a robbery onboard a #80 Irving Park bus in North Center Wednesday evening.

Prosecutors say Nathaniel J. Hernandez pointed an 8 millimeter blank pistol at a 46-year-old fellow passenger's head and took the man's Samsung Galaxy phone and wallet as the bus neared Irving Park and Damen.

Hernandez is also accused of pointing the gun in the bus driver's face and ordering him to open the bus doors to allow Hernandez to escape.

Police arrested Hernandez a few minutes after the robbery and he was positively identified by "all victims and witnesses" who were on the bus, prosecutors say. Hernandez's gun was found under a dumpster in the 3900 block of Damen.

Bond is set at $300,000.

  1. It just fucking disgusts me to no end when I walk along Halsted Street and see the majority of businesses proudly displaying their "Proven Leader" Tunney campaign signs in the windows. And it fucking disgusts me to see people from our community inside of those establishments. What the fuck is wrong with you people, when are you going to start fighting for your safety?

    1. Boycott (no pun intended) them. I did. Every vote counts.

    2. If a business does not display a Tunney sign, that business will be relentlessly harassed by city inspectors and licensing departments and tax boards. So they are really just being blackmailed into showing support. And voters really don't have much in the way of options...Mark Thomas is about the creepiest looking and acting guy I ever saw and Scott Davis seems to be obsessed with red-light cameras and nothing else. So I would be equally ashamed to be represented by Tunney, Thomas, or Davis.

    3. My business has no Tunney sign on display, never will, and if anyone comes to my place to relentlessly harass me, I will tell them to fuck off.

  2. They do not care. They patronize these businesses to get drunk, seek out other guys' pee-pees, and anything political is irrelevant. And the bar owners know it. One owner in particular disgusts me. He slams Tunney and his lack of caring for the ward, yet he has a big "Tunney Proven Leader" sign in his fucking storefront window. I tell everyone I know not to patronize his tacky little bar.

    Bottom line, this neighborhood is in a mess, and if you think it's bad now, wait until His Royal Highness, The Great Smug One Oh Great Exalted Tunneys, is re-elected in a few weeks. He will return to sitting on his duff (only occasionally exerting energy to "look into" a given issue) and collect his hundreds of thousands right out of our pockets.

  3. Any guy who uses the term "pee-pees" is even creepier than Tunney.

  4. RE Mr N.J. Hernandez
    May I suggest 3 - 5 yrs for the armed robbery.
    An additional 7 - 10 for gross stupidity.

  5. Who cares anyone that make their decision by a sign in a window of a business isn't very informed. Problem in Chicago is most qualified people won't run for office because it's so corrupt here.

    1. You're obviously the model citizen that politicians like Rahm and Tunney LOVE. Ah yes, who cares...sadly, that's what's happening in the neighborhood.

      Who cares....everybody in the neighborhood should care when a business owner places a sign in the window because it shows who they support - doesn't matter if we vote for that person or if we are informed or uninformed.

  6. He'll be back on the streets in less than 6 months...and I'm guessing will be a repeat offender

    1. He can always enroll in the Silver Fork program at Center on Halsted and have taxpayers fund his education, just like Robert Vacha did.
