Chicago police have been a roll lately, arresting four alleged robbery offenders in connection with two separate robberies around our neighborhood.

Abel Pineda and Maciej Sas are both charged with one count of robbery after allegedly mugging a woman in the 700 block of Aldine last Tuesday evening. A police officer spotted them walking into the Shell gas station at Halsted and Addison shortly after the reported crime.

Prosecutors say Sas approached a Boystown woman on Aldine and said, “give me your sh*t nigga.” When the woman refused, Sas allegedly elbowed the woman in the stomach, wrestled her phone away, and gave it to Pineda. The victim is white.

Both men are free on electronic monitoring.

In 2004, Pineda, 31, received 30 months probation after pleading guilty to committing an armed robbery in West Rogers Park.

Sas, 29, of Oak Lawn, is currently awaiting resolution of a shoplifting case in which he’s accused of stealing two hats and a porno mag from a Shell gas station in suburban Palos Hills. (He seems to have very bad luck at Shell gas stations.)
