CRESTWOOD, Ill. (CBS) — After spending days on the run, two more suspects are in custody in connection with an armed robbery in the south suburbs.
Anthony Albritton Jr., 21, and Eric Goudeau, 23, both of Robbins, are charged in the Nov. 13 robbery in Crestwood, along with a 16-year-old Park Forest boy whose name has not been released. The teenage boy was arrested at the scene, but the other two got away.
The suspects are charged with robbing a Little Caesar’s Pizza at 13541 S. Cicero Ave., and a Walgreens drugstore at 13501 S. Cicero Ave.
On the day of the robbery, police officers arrived on the scene and saw the three masked suspects leaving Walgreen’s and running east from the scene, a news release said.
It was not immediately known what was taken from the businesses.
An officer chased the suspects until they ran in different directions. The officer continued chasing one suspect, the teenage boy, on foot and saw that he was holding a gun, which the suspect threw to the ground. Officers apprehended him.
Multiple suburban police agencies, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit and a police helicopter searched for the other two suspects, as they escaped, the release said.
It took several days, but Albritton and Goudeau were later located and connected with the robberies.
Goudeau and Albritton were charged in November 2009 with a string of burglaries that occurred in Crestwood. The Chicago Tribune reported Albritton pleaded guilty and had to pay restitution in that case, while the charges against Goudeau were dropped.
Goudeau was denied bond and he is scheduled to appear Dec. 5 in a Bridgeview court, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s website. Bond was set at $250,000 for Albritton and he is scheduled to appear Nov. 28 in a Bridgeview court.
