Two Teens Robbed at Gunpoint

Two Evergreen Park teens were held up at gunpoint earlier this week.

No suspects are in custody after two teens were held up at gunpoint on Oct. 15 in Evergreen Park. 

The boys were on the 9700 block of Harding Avenue around 11:15 p.m. when they were approached by two men, police said. 

One of the men took out a silver handgun and demanded the boys' cell phones, police said. 

The men then fled northbound on Harding.

Police describe the suspects as male blacks, one possibly in his late teens and the other in his mid- to late 20s, police said. 

No one has been picked up in relation to the robbery and the case remains open.

Once nice quiet communities have been torn apart by sect.8 housing. Look at the crime report listed. Most I bet are on welfare and sect. 8

This is getting ridiculous. What can we do to keep our wonderful neighborhood safe?

Mary- I was wondering the same thing and came up with putting Ccw in place. I used to live in Texas and never seen such non sense going on. Pulling guns out to steal cell phones,$25, anything!! ccw would have these clowns thinking before they commited these crimes. It's only getting worse than the liberal judge sets them free.

I agree with Mary, but wonder why 2 teens are out at 11:15 PM on a Monday night. But none the less, an armed robbery in our Village is unacceptable.

In the good old days the cops would have seen these two and grabbed them for a search before they were able to do something like this. Used to be these two "didn't fit the profile of the neighborhood." Very sadly, not the case anymore.
