He Knocked A 70-Year-Old Out And Robbed Him Near The Sheridan Red Line, Prosecutors Say

Cannon punched a 70-year-old man to the ground and robbed him outside the Sheridan Red Line station, cops say.
It’s the third time this week that we’re reporting about elderly victims being attacked and robbed at or near the CTA.

At least this morning there’s good news.

A 24-year-old Near West Side man is charged with punching a 70-year-old man in the face, knocking him to the ground, and “striking the victim with a dangerous weapon” during a robbery near the Sheridan Red Line station on August 7.


Karon Cannon of the 1300 block of West Roosevelt is charged with one felony count of armed robbery with a dangerous weapon and one felony count of aggravated battery-great bodily harm, police said.

The attack took place around 6 p.m. on that summer night. The victim was treated and released from Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Cannon was arrested on Wednesday night near his home.

Records show that at the time of the attack Cannon was free on electronic monitoring while fighting a domestic battery charge.

  4. I'd like to think that our legal system will do the right thing to protect us from this committed criminal and give him at least 10 years behind bars, but I am guessing he will be back on the streets terrorizing more innocent victims within 2 years.

    1. Your absolutely right, judge will put him on double probation and electronic monitoring. They mean to teach him a lesson.

    1. If it was in DuPage maybe. But he will get a large sausage and onion pizza and a reduced charge and he will be out in a year or two.

  6. 25 years to life, are you kidding me this is Chicago. He will be back on the street before the pizza he gets from Dart gets cold.
