Robbing North Center Starbucks brings Venti®-sized trouble

A 19-year-old man is charged with robbing a North Center neighborhood Starbucks and battering the 40-year-old barista who tried to stop him, according to newly-filed court records.

Cherry (Chicago Police Dept)
Prosecutors say Carlton Cherry of West Ridge walked into the coffee shop at 4015 N. Lincoln and took about $7 cash from the store’s tip jar last Friday morning. Then, he socked a barista in the mouth when she tried to intervene.

Cops working off of a description of the robber stopped Cherry on Montrose Avenue and brought him to the store where a witness and the employee positively identified him as the offender.

Now, Cherry—who sports a tattoo on his left hand that says “Guns Drugs Money Sex”—is charged with felony robbery and felony aggravated battery of a merchant.

He has been released on electronic monitoring.

  1. Thanks Carl for the giant "Carl" neck tattoo. Makes it easy to ID you the next time you smack around a barista. Tough guy.

    1. That's probably the only way he can remember what his name is.

    2. The problem is he always spells it backwards.

  2. Electronic monitoring? So we'll be reading about him committing another crime this weekend?

    1. Pretty much. : (

      At least the neck tattoo will help identify him to his next victim.

  3. Right at the busy intersection of Lincoln/Damen/Irving Park. And now this bullshit has come to my neighborhood, North Center. These wastes of oxygen have no fear and don't give a rat's ass who they rob or beat. Why should they? This guy's been released on electronic monitoring!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay Pawar, your turn to be held accountable.

  4. Dontcha just love that judge ... electronic monitoring for a physical attack. Would love a judge's list sidebar reference so we can keep track of the swinging door menaces who're running the gerbil wheel of justice here.

  5. Because ballers take $7 from the tip jar.

  6. Does Manhattan get the same kind of crime as we see here on the North Side? Or is it simply too busy for perps to get try? Why does the North Side have so many bad guys walking around doing what they want?

    1. It's happening in every large city.
      It's just not being reported by the media!

  7. Charged with 2 felonies and released on electronic monitoring...what a joke the legal system is in this city .....I'm sure we'll be seeing his mug here again, long before the summer is over

  8. Wow! Released on electronic monitoring . . . Did the judge also give him a slap on the hand, a new suit and $5.00 spending money ? Cook County is one big joke. Oh, now, when do we receive the second half of our tax bill ? Someone has to pay these "judges".

  9. Unless the 'electronic monitoring' ankle bracelet contains a taser that lights Carl up about once an hour.....I'm guessing it won't really succeed.

  12. Love you guys at CWB. Thanks so much for reporting all the stuff that no one else will report. We are going to have to compile a list of judges names so we can campaign against their reelection. Were it not for you guys, no one would know just how worthless our Catch and Release justice system is. You tireless reporting on the issues that matter makes a huge difference and your friends and neighbors in Wrigleyville and Lakeview greatly appreciate all you do.

    1. Thank you for your support and, as we say, for caring about our neighborhood.

    2. I LOVE the idea of releasing judges names that make these terrible decisions.

  13. "Hello Carl, what can we get started for you today?". I'll bet that's what set him off.

  14. I guess that horseshoe shaped tattoo below his name is bringing him some luck.

    Or is that a gang symbol?

    Whatever, either way, his personalized neck tattoo will be unmistakable to his next victim.

    Once again, thank you CPD! To those that contributed to his release, let's hope his next crime is not murder.

  15. Would love to know what was the radio traffic on this one?
    "BOLO....dumbass....with 'Carl' tattoo on neck."

  16. The electronic bracelet is a love token from our judges they are going steady now.Its a symbol of hope and flourishing to them.

  17. Yes, lets monitor him commit another crime. HE WILL COMMIT ANOTHER CRIME.

    Thanks judge. I have a feeling if the barista was your daughter, you'd have kept the guy behind bars till his day in court.

  18. I really think its important to note here that he was released on electronic monitoring as a condition of his bail. He's still expected back in court.

  19. You want to know which judges suck? Pick any court room at 26 / Cal and just watch the corruption in the name of saving dollars. Then publish their names here with the case and verdict.
