TRES LEACHES: Eardrum Punctured, Kneecap Broken In Boystown Robbery

CWB Chicago has learned new details about a brutal robbery and beating along the Boystown bar strip last Saturday morning, including the identity of a third man who is associated with the alleged offenders.

Keith Perkins, 23, of the Near West Side and Oscar Suarez, 28, of Edgewater were arrested in the Loop last Saturday morning after they allegedly robbed two people on a Blue Line CTA train.

Detectives were then able to connect the pair to another robbery that had been reported in Boystown earlier that morning.

In the CTA attacks, one victim told police that Perkins placed him in a chokehold while Suarez went through the victim's pants and took his phone and wallet.

A second victim on the same train told police that Suarez punched him in the face while Perkins and third man, Elohim Bey, held him. Suarez then went into the victim's pockets and took his iPhone, the victim said.

The Boystown victim suffered a punctured eardrum and a broken kneecap at the hands of Suarez and Perkins, according to prosecutors. The duo also took the man's phone. His story was first reported by DNAInfo.

CWB Chicago has now learned that the Boystown victim sought refuge in a taxi cab after he was attacked at Halsted and Belmont  around 4:50AM. He told police that he had been attacked by two black men in their mid-20's.

Moments later, we have learned, another 911 caller reported that two black men and a Hispanic man had threatened him and that they had moved on to threaten a woman nearby. He believed the three were about to attack the woman, he said.

Suarez and Perkins are each charged with two counts of robbery, one count of robbery while indicating the presence of a weapon, and one count of aggravated battery. Bail for each is set at $300,000.

Bey, 22, of East Garfield Park, is charged with one count of robbery and one count of robbery while indicating the presence of a firearm. He has not been charged in the Boystown incident. His bail is set at $90,000.

  1. Wow another in a great string of arrests CPD!!! Thank you. These guys are some dangerous people. They didn't just mug that poor guy in boys town but did a number on him. So glad they are off the streets. We need these scumbags to tell their hommies that 019 and CPD will arrest your ass if you come shopping up in our hood. (hehe everyone like my use of street venacular)

    1. The unfortunate truth is that they and their hommies don't give a crap. If they get caught they are wrist slapped. CPD catches them and weak prosecutors and weaker judges do nothing and they are back on the street.

      If only the world was not filled with low information voters who consistently re-elected fools to office.

      CWB does a great job getting the word out but the problem is you have voters who will still vote for the same old idiots or feel that scum like this need to have more time to turn their lives around.

  2. Chicago Police are looking for a man that shot at them and was arrested for it over the summer, he has removed his electronic monitoring twice and is gone. Now here's the question, who decided on giving him home confinement a second time after he removed the device once? I have no faith in these guys going to prison for any length of time, time to get your concealed carry permit and protect yourselves.

  3. I sure would like to see this kind of punishment used today...
    Put them on Halsted Street, a new tourist attraction.

    Pillory and Stocks

    The pillory was a wooden frame on a pole with holes through which a person's head and hands were placed. The frame was then locked and the person was subjected to humiliation and ridicule. Sometimes people also threw unpleasant objects at the person in the pillory. The stocks was a wooden frame with holes through which a person's feet were placed and they were humiliated in the same way. Use of the pillory and stocks went out of favor in the 19th century. The pillory was abolished in Britain in 1837 and the stocks was abolished in 1872.

    1. There used to be a stigma attached (shame) to crime, how that has changed for many members of our society.

  4. Of course no concealed carry allowed on the CTA, etc. Just sitting ducks for the slaughter.

  5. Let's see: One from East Garfield Park, another from Edgewater and the other from the Near West Side. I wonder where these upstanding men might have become acquainted. Could they have been collegiates or perhaps business associates? Or perhaps just "youths" finding birds of a feather at the Center on Hasted. Just a guess, but I'd venture a good one.

  6. Give them 6 months - the slap on the wrist justice system will have them back on the streets. They will be posted on here again - caught for robbery while on probation

  7. I don't think these people would be so eager to dish out brutality if they started getting a little of it back. Always such looks of bored inconvenience on their faces. Maybe it will take a revolution, but we can only hope for the day.

    1. Pretty soon health insurance rates will skyrocket for residents of the 60657 zip code. They have bean counters and statisticians.

  9. Perkins has been arrested three times in less than a year: once for possessing and trying to sell weed, once for driving through an alley while having a suspended license, no registration, and no insurance.

    Bey has been arrested five times since July '14. Drinking in public, three counts of dealing/possessing weed in public, plus this latest crime.

    Glad Suarez lives near the lakefront with the rest of the garbage.

  10. I wonder if their families are reading this. I would be ashamed to call them a son or brother. I think they should each get a busted kneecap and a punctured eardrum.

    1. I think their families are proud of them. That's part of the problem

  11. So this victim is going to have hearing and knee problems for the rest of his life thanks to these three thug-tards. You don’t just recover from injuries like this.

    They better not just get a fucking slap on the wrist. How can we keep track of what happens to these losers?

    This isn't a mere beating; they caused long term issues for this victim, and they deserve long term jail time.

    Also, their families should be paying for the victims care and rehabilitation. Of course, the families are probably scumbags too.

    1. CWB Chicago maintains a court case "watch list" of cases to track. We report the resolutions of watch list cases as they happen. These guys are now on the list.
