Three juveniles — the oldest only 15-years-old — are charged with armed robbery for mugging a DePaul University in Lincoln Park on Thursday evening.
The victim, age 23, was walking when three offenders started following her around 7:15 p.m., according to CPD spokesperson Kellie Bartoli. When the woman stopped on the 2200 block of North Fremont, the robbers grabbed her arm, displayed a gun, and ordered her to surrender her valuables, Bartoli said.
She complied with their demands and they ran away with her property.
Police searched the area and arrested the offenders near Dayton and Belden streets as they tried to use the woman’s credit card to order a Lyft. Cops recovered two look-alike handguns from the suspects, according to a CPD report.
Bartoli said the offenders are boys ages 15-, 14- and 13-years-old. The younger ones are charged with armed robbery with a firearm, while the oldest is charged with aggravated robbery indicating a firearm. No further information is available about the trio because they are juveniles.
