Gang Members Arrested After Attacking Suburban Boys

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. (STMW) – Three admitted gang members are facing felony charges for the beatings of two northwest suburban boys on Wednesday.

Just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, Mount Prospect police responded to the area of Boxwood Drive and Dogwood Lane to investigate a battery. Upon arrival, officers found two boys who had sustained multiple injuries, according to a release from police.

The victims reported being confronted and attacked by several gang members near 919 Boxwood Dr. The victims reported being struck multiple times, the report said.

One of the victims was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for treatment of injuries and the other was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights for treatment of blunt trauma, the release said. The injuries were considered non-life-threatening.

The victims’ statements of what happened led to the arrest of three admitted gang members by Mount Prospect and Wheeling police.

Jorge Magana, 17, of Wheeling; Luis Guzman, 17, of Arlington Heights; and a 16-year-old Wheeling boy were charged with one felony count each of aggravated battery and two felony counts each of mob action, the release said.

Magana and Guzman were scheduled to appear in bond court Friday in Rolling Meadows for a bond hearing, while the juvenile was being held at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center, the release said.

      You don’t even know if the victims were of the same race or not. How long will it take for people to realize a hate crime does not occur simply because the attacker and victim are of different races??



      • S. Kedzie

        Well in 99% of hate crimes the person charged is white.

      • N

        But if a white italian or irish kid beat up the black or hispanic kid who stole his bike, it would be a hate crime because the minority woulkd see it as a pay day…. STFU Rob

      • A. Saxon

        Hate crime laws were something lawmakers came up with to increase sentences on white people who commit crimes against minorities. I know it sounds like BS, but that is just the way it is.

  • mike

    Why is every comment always about race????????

  • Tellthetruth

    Do illegal aliens get taxpayer funded defense counsel? Just wondering…….

    • m

      Why is every hispanic an illegal alien? Are all whites serial killers, child molesters, mass murderers? ie., columbine, ted bundy, Do these killers get taxpayer funded defenses? Oh no, that’s right. They get to live for the rest of their lives funded by taxpayers!

  • jesse

    Tellthetruth-Yes they will get the best lawyers for free-did you know that an illegal alien can get free legal aid to sue employers who don’t pay them minimum wage or overtime? Yes it’s true and it winds up in federal court-is that an oxy moron or what?
