CHICAGO — Two migrants are charged with robbery after a group of people stormed a Streeterville convenience store and stole bags of beer, according to Chicago police reports.

A detention petition said the men “in association with multiple other individuals” entered the store at 600 North McClurg around 5:45 p.m. on June 9. The group collected cases of beer and headed for the exit, but officials said two female store employees tried to block their escape.

According to prosecutors, members of the group physically assaulted both women, who were 48 and 26 years old. The group pushed and punched one woman and threw a case of beer at the other to get them away from the exit, the detention petition said.

Chicago police allegedly found two members of the group nearby with some of the stolen beer: Adrian Jose Ruiz Sosa, a 23-year-old man from Venezuela, and 23-year-old Peruvian native Kent Abed Minaya Munoz.

Sosa was on pretrial release at the time of the robbery for allegedly shoplifting gym shoes and slides from the Nordstrom Rack at 24 North State, according to court records. Munoz was charged with shoplifting from the Macy’s on State Street in April, but prosecutors dropped the case on May 30.

They are now each charged with two counts of robbery. Judge Ankur Srivastava rejected the state’s detention petitions and released the men on electronic monitoring.

Sosa listed the shelter at 344 North Ogden as his home address. Munoz’s address was the Standard Club shelter at 320 South Plymouth.
