Two Students Charged In Strong-Arm Robbery

EVANSTON, Ill. (WBBM) — Two Evanston Township High School students are accused of knocking several students to the ground and taking their cell phones in the hallways of the school.

Levertis Williams, 18, and Julian Hutchinson, 17, are both charged with two counts of felony strong-arm robbery.

Police say on Thursday in two separate incidents, Evanston students reported being robbed.

The first incident took place at 10:20 a.m. when two robbers approached a student while he was opening his locker.

One of the robbers placed his arm around the student’s neck and pushed him to the hallway floor. The robber then said, “Let me get that phone.”

Police say the victim refused, and the robber went into the victim’s pockets and removed an Apple iPhone. Then the robbers fled.

Later the same day at 3:30 p.m., police say the same robbers approached two students as they were walking in the hallway.

According to both victims, the robbers came from behind, pushed them against the wall and caused them to fall to the floor.

Then the victims say one of the robbers said, “Give me that cell phone.”

Both robbers then went into the pockets of both victims and took their cell phones then ran away.

    Poor guys, perhaps an Attorney can work for a plea bargain and get these guys off with a slap on the wrist. Isn’t that how our Judicial system works? Some sympathetic judge will go along with probably faulting the victims for carrying cell phones to school.

    “Oh no. Not my boy. He’s a really good kid. Someone must have framed them or something.”

    It’s sad that often the parents are the last ones to realize what pieces of $hit their sons turn out to be.
