Two men have been charged with the beating and robbery of a 25-year-old Wrigleyville man on June 7.

Joseph L. Grant, 23, and Robert Perkins, 20, were arrested at the Addison Red Line station shortly after the incident, police said.

The victim told police that two men approached him from behind in the 3600 block of Sheffield around 3:00AM and punched him in the head and face before removing his iPhone and wallet from his pockets.

Court records indicate that police found the victim’s credit cards and state ID in the offenders’ possession and the victim’s wallet on the ground nearby.

Grant has already pleaded guilty to one count of robbery and received a sentence of 30 months probation and time served.

Perkins, who was on parole for a weapons violation at the time of the alleged attack, has been returned to prison. His next court date on the robbery charge is July 31.
