Theft Mob Hits Lincoln Square Phone Store

Five teens—some perhaps just 13-years-old—robbed a Lincoln Square T-Mobile store on Sunday afternoon, police said.

The mob entered the store at 4900 North Western around 2:45 p.m. and began ripping phones off of the walls while brandishing knives, an employee reported.

After filling their own Christmas wish lists early, the fivesome fled south toward Lawrence.

Police offered the following descriptions:

#1-Male, black, 15, wearing a skull cap and black hoodie
#2-Male, black, 13, wearing a knit cap and orange jacket
#3-Male, black, 15, wearing a blue sweater
#4-Male, black, 14, wearing a gray sweater
