Cavin (L) and Powell (Chicago Police Department)

18-year-old Roger Powell and 19-year-old Joshua Cavin are accused of attacking the man in the 3600 block of N. Fremont and taking the victim’s phone and wallet at midnight last Sunday, according to court records.

The alleged robbery scene is in full view of the 19th district station’s parking lot.

Cavin, who lives in South Shore, was taken into custody almost immediately. His bail is set at $90,000

Powell, whose bond is set at $75,000, was arrested at Waveland and Sheffield minutes later. He lives in the Austin neighborhood.

Police believe the victim was mugged as an estimated 100 “kids” filed out of a nearby house party.

“Theft And Battery”

Jamieson (Chicago Police Dept)

19-year-old Kiandre Jamieson of Humboldt Park is accused of taking a 40-year-old man’s cellphone near the Sheridan Red Line station around 9 a.m. on New Year’s Day and then punching the victim when he tried to get his phone back, court records show.

The victim insisted that Jamieson only be charged with theft and battery even though the crime could have qualified for felony robbery charges, police said in their report.

Jamieson is free on a $1,500 I-Bond.
