Here's one heck of a coincidence.

So, yesterday, two "kids" robbed a guy of his phone near the Sheridan Red Line station. When the victim chased after the thieves, they spun around and shot him in the forehead with what proved to be a BB gun.

Now, get this: Just a couple of days earlier, cops arrested three people near the Sheridan Red Line for shooting pellet guns at cars. Cops say they found at least thirteen cell phones of various makes and models in the trio's possession.

Now, what are the odds of that?

Police went to the 4000 block of North Sheridan around 11:30 p.m. Monday after witnesses reported seeing three people shooting pellet guns at parked cars.

Officers said they saw three people walking away from an area where three vehicles sat with shattered windows.

20-year-old Dontae Pearson of the Oakland neighborhood had 13 cell phones in a backpack, according to court records. He also had a bag of BBs and a pellet gun, prosecutors said.

He’s charged with possession of a replica firearm, theft of lost or mislaid property, criminal damage to property, and reckless conduct. He is currently on probation after pleading guilty to a residential burglary this summer.

Thomas Wolkow, 22, faces the same charges as Pearson.

His sister, Sarah Wolkow, is charged with reckless conduct,

The Wolkows listed the Howard Brown Health Center at 4025 N. Sheridan as their “home.”

Just imagine what might happen if detectives would take a few hours to track down the owners of those phones. They may find some activity that's a lot more serious than theft of "lost or mislaid" property
