A man who’s on probation for beating a teenager girl and robbing her at a downtown subway station last year is now accused of burglarizing the Loyola Red Line station’s Dunkin’ Donuts franchise, according to court records.

Police responded to the restaurant at 1200 West Loyola at 12:30 a.m on Apr. 28th after receiving a call of a disturbance. Police stopped 19-year-old Dernandiez Lindsey as he walked from the scene. He told them that he worked at the Dunkin’ location.

But cops dug a little further and found the back door of the restaurant had been pried open and allegedly found its cash registers were “stripped and on the floor.” Lindsey, police said, was carrying cash and rolled coins.

Prosecutors charged him with felony burglary.

Court records show that he was given 30 months probation last August after he pleaded guilty to punching a 17-year-old girl in the face and mouth during a robbery at the Jackson Red Line station on Feb. 13, 2018. The robbery netted him a Gucci belt, the girl’s debit card, and $7 cash, prosecutors said.

Lindsey has been ordered held without bail on a violation of probation warrant in the robbery case.
