CHOIR BOYS: Juveniles Robbed 3 At Gunpoint Sunday

Two juveniles are in custody, accused of robbing three people at gunpoint during daylight robberies in Lincoln Park Sunday morning. A third offender may have slipped away, police said.

Tenth district police officers located the suspects' car by following pings from a victim’s cellphone to the 1200 block of S. Kedvale in the North Lawndale neighborhood. A handgun was recovered nearby, an officer reported.

Two of the victims were robbed shortly before 11AM as they walked in the 800 block of Lill, about a half-block from 43rd Ward Alderman Michele Smith’s office.

According to the victims, a red Mazda pulled up and the offenders got out, produced a silver handgun, and demanded their cell phones.

About an hour earlier, a young man was robbed at gunpoint by two offenders near the Armitage Brown Line station. He told police that two teenagers in a red car robbed him after they stopped to ask him for directions.

Police determined that the offenders' car was also stolen.

  2. I hope felony charges are coming for the owner of the gun, in my opinion, if they can get adult weapons and premeditate their crimes, charge them as adults.

  3. These offenders are juveniles and thus will be given a slap on the wrist and let go with double secret probation!

    You heard it here first!

  4. I wonder if these were the same 3 guys who took off with about 9 bottles of expensive liquor from B&J Liquors on Lawrence while I was inside at about 5:30pm. Another witness said they hopped into a waiting red car around the corner. The clerk called the cops but they basically just told him good luck.

  5. Ignore them. Don't answer their "questions".

    1. If you let one of them get close enough to you to ask for directions or for a light or for the time, it is already too late and unless you are armed you are about to be mugged.

  7. Supervision, Probation, whatever it is, WILL NOT make 1 difference, and they will continue to commit 100 more crimes in the next year or two. The great thing is that as soon as these pieces of garbage turn 18, their entire record is wiped clean, as if they were choir boys singing in the church. Lovely system we have in this country, people bash other parts of the world for their justice or harsh punishments, but hey, perhaps those places don't tolerate our mockery of victimization in this city and country.

  8. it would be nice if parents were criminally and financially libel for the acts of their children. sad that some have to be prodded to have "skin in the game" for their kids, but might make the decision to turn them loose on the rest of us less whimsical.

    1. I think they are actually liable for their kids, same as your boss is liable for you if you get into trouble on the job.
