Two men have been charged with the beating and robbery of a 25-year-old Wrigleyville man on June 7.

Joseph L. Grant, 23, and Robert Perkins, 20, were arrested at the Addison Red Line station shortly after the incident, police said.

The victim told police that two men approached him from behind in the 3600 block of Sheffield around 3:00AM and punched him in the head and face before removing his iPhone and wallet from his pockets.

Court records indicate that police found the victim’s credit cards and state ID in the offenders' possession and the victim’s wallet on the ground nearby.

Grant has already pleaded guilty to one count of robbery and received a sentence of 30 months probation and time served.

Perkins, who was on parole for a weapons violation at the time of the alleged attack, has been returned to prison. His next court date on the robbery charge is July 31.

  1. That one in the top photo looks especially snarly. Get a load of the pursed lips and cocked head. I bet he's just soooo sorry he got caught. But then again, some liberal-ass judge will issue a willy-nilly, slap-on-the-wrist penalty, and this thug will be back on the streets before Hallowe'en. Now that's a spooky thought. And here's another spooky thought: "Crime is down!!!" -Tom Tunney

  2. So in article one today the guys get 12 years, and in article 2 the one guy gets probation. Let me guess, different judges.
