Boy beaten, robbed on Foster Street

Three men on Saturday robbed a 15-year-old Evanston boy.

The boy was waiting for a ride from a friend in the 1600 block of Foster Street when he was approached by three men ages 18 to 25, said Evanston Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrott. The three men allegedly knocked the boy to the ground, kicked him repeatedly, took his bike and cell phone and fled the scene.
