A news release from the CPD dated Saturday night says:
- "Juvenile Charged in CTA Robberies
- Name: Male Juvenile, 17, of the 4600 block of N. Clifton
- Charges: Two felony counts of Robbery
- The above offender was arrested and charged after he was identified as the offender in two incidents on the CTA Red Line. The incidents occurred on December 28th, 2014 at approximately 2:15am and January 14, 2015 at 10:45pm on the 4600 block of N. Broadway.
In both cases, a female victim’s cell phone was forcibly grabbed from her hand. Video surveillance was recovered and distributed to media outlets which ultimately assisted in the identification and apprehension of the offender."
For those wondering why all the news trucks were at Wilson and Broadway Friday night, they were doing on-the-scene stories about the series of thefts. The arrested juvenile lives just a block away, on Clifton Avenue. Nice work.
