A man was robbed by a group of people after leaving a gas station early Sunday, Oct. 21. The man told police, according to the report, he went to the Mobil gas station, 4802 Dempster St., to purchase a pack of cigarettes at approximately midnight on Oct. 21. When he reached the gas station he was approached by two men in their 20s, who yelled at him repeatedly, “king killa.”
After purchasing a pack of cigarettes at the gas station, the man left and was walking northbound on the west sidewalk on the 8900 block of La Crosse Avenue when, according to police, he noticed two vehicles, one possibly a gray Saturn, driving slowly northbound on La Crosse Avenue. Both vehicles suddenly stopped, the man told police, and several people exited the vehicles and started running toward the man, repeatedly yelling “king killa.”
The man started running away from them, according to the report, but tripped on a bush and fell to the ground.
The male and female subjects began hitting and kicking him all over his body while he was on the ground, police stated, and removed from his pockets two cell phones, an Illinois state identification card, a U.S. military identification card, the pack of cigarettes and his wallet.
Property loss was estimated at $289.
