Juvenile put in headlock during attempted robbery

Three young men attempted to rob a juvenile Wednesday in the 600 block of Sheridan Road, police said.

The boy had previously planned to meet up with one of the offenders to hang out after they had talked over Facebook, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The subject showed up with three other men and proceeded to put the victim in a headlock and punch him several times while searching for the victim’s new iPhone, he said.

Detectives are currently investigating the identities of the suspects.

Man robbed at knifepoint

A man was robbed Wednesday when suspects placed a sharp object against his back and demanded his belongings, police said.

Three offenders approached the victim at the corner of South Boulevard and Callan Avenue early Wednesday morning. They threatened him with a sharp object and asked for the victim’s property, Parrott said.

When the man could not produce anything, the offenders fled westbound into an alley, police said. The theft is under investigation by police.
