Police arrest third teen in cell phone robbery


Evanston Police detectives today took a 15-year-old Chicago girl into custody in connection with an early-morning strong-arm robbery Jan. 10 in the 800 block of Judson Avenue.

The female victim told police that three teens followed her after she left the Main Street CTA station about 12:05 a.m.

Detectives, aided by security video from the CTA station were able to identify all three suspects in the case. Two of the girls — ages 13 and 14 — were arrested last Friday. All three now have been charged with robbery and are scheduled to appear in juvenile court.
