Three juvenile girls were in court today accused of robbing and punching two 14-year-old girls on Oak Street off Michigan Avenue Tuesday evening in the Gold Coast neighborhood.
The victims, both of Chicago, were not injured but had their cell phones taken.
Police responded to call of a robbery in the 0-100 block of East Oak Street about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday and met the two 14-year-old girls who told them one of the three suspects approached one of the girls and asked to use her cell phone.
The girl complied and when she walked away with the phone, the other two suspects confronted the victims and began to punch them and grabbed a second cell phone.
A witness saw the victims screaming and chased the suspects eastbound on Oak Street. The three girls were taken into custody about 20 minutes after the robbery.
