year-old male victim in a tan sedan as the victim was walking at which time 2 offenders exited
and displayed a revolver while demanding the victim’s property. The victim cooperated and
the offenders fled in the same vehicle. Responding officers located the vehicle traveling S/B

area hospitals in stable condition. A weapon was recovered inside of the offender’s vehicle
which was reported stolen from Matteson, IL. A custodial search of the 17-year-old offender
revealed prescription drugs which he did not have a prescription to possess and was therefor

offenders were responsible for four additional Armed Robberies which occurred in the 2nd
District the morning of December 21, 2016. All four offenders were charged accordingly. No
