Two men are charged with threatening to shoot a victim during a robbery in the West Ridge neighborhood Sunday night.

18-year-old Hunter Gregory of Skokie and 30-year-old Guy Cabrol of Rogers Park approached the man near Green Briar Park around 11:55 p.m., prosecutors said.

“Give me your shit,” Gregory allegedly ordered, adding, “I think this guy’s looking to get shot” when the victim refused.

Cabrol reportedly agreed, saying “yeah, I think we have to put him down” as Gregory reached into his rear waistband.

The victim dropped to his knees on a sidewalk in the 6000 block of North Talman.

“Drop your shit. Drop everything on the ground,” Cabrol is alleged to have ordered. “This guy is going to get shot.”

Cabrol then took the 21-year-old victim’s headphones and threw them into the park while Gregory sifted through the man’s backpack and took a phone and wallet, police said.

Gregory and Cabrol ran from the scene, but cops found them nearby minutes later.

Both men are charged with one count of aggravated robbery-indicating the presence of a firearm. On Friday afternoon, court records indicated that they will be freed on electronic monitoring.
