15-Year-Old Charged With Robbery Near Boystown This Weekend


A 15-year-old boy is in custody, accused of taking part in a group robbery near Boystown early Saturday morning.

Police responded to the 3200 block of North Clark around 2:45 a.m. after a woman reported seeing three males holding two other men at gunpoint near a painting supply store. Officers on patrol near Halsted and Aldine located the 15-year-old and found him to be in possession of a fake firearm and credit cards belonging to a 20-year-old man, according to a police spokesman.

The victim had left the scene to seek treatment at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, police said, but investigators later contacted him by phone.

Police said the teen is charged with one misdemeanor count of theft of lost or mislaid property and a city ordinance violation for possession of a replica firearm. Officials said no further information about the boy will be made public because he is a juvenile.

Rec Drive Strikes Again

Police are looking for a parolee and Gangster Disciple gang member for questioning after a man was robbed at knifepoint along Recreation Drive around 1:20 a.m. Tuesday.

The victim told police that the offender pulled out a blade and demanded property, but then fled after only getting the man’s state ID. He said the robber is a black man who wore a tan coat with a fur collar. The suspect fled in a black SUV that was last seen exiting the Recreation Drive parking area near Irving Park Road.

Investigators believe patrol officers issued a citation to the suspect shortly before the robbery and they are working to track the man down.

  1. Some of the best real estate in the city is within 5 blocks of there. A formerly great neighborhood. Now, look at the mess. Look at the crap. I moved out. Sold the great view. Friends from other cities and burbs couldn't believe it.
    Think I'm a dope???
    Look at the real estate values. They don't lie.
    Chicago values.

  2. Charged with theft of lost or mislaid property after robbing someone at gunpoint. What is the point of having cops around if the prosecutors refuse to hold criminals accountable for their actions? The youth is most likely back walking amongst us today looking for his next victim.

  3. Why is someone out at 1AM in the park?

    1. Why is someone mugging someone at knifepoint? I used to walk around Boston at 4am when I lived there (for a decade) and never once had a problem. Chicago is a total shithole.

  4. Prediction: Victim will not show up in court. 15-yo perp will walk. Another innocent will be victimized by the offender within 12 months.

    1. Bullshit, 12 months. More like 3 months.

  5. And it's an amusing fact that if you called this 15 year old boy a "boy" in Boystown, you'd probably get pummeled by 8 of them.

  6. WTF mislaid property my ads. Just another way to let the thug in training go without so much as a slap on the wrist. He'll be out doing the same thing in 2 weeks. Next time with a real firearm.

  7. Weed deal gone bad. Victims never called police after getting robbed, even though both had phones. Police had to track down victims in an Evanston hospital
