CHICAGO (STMW) — Two men have been arrested and charged in a string of armed robberies that took place on the North Side between Thursday and Sunday.

The men would allegedly approach their victims at gunpoint and take money, smart phones and other valuables, police News Affairs John Mirabelli said. They were arrested Sunday night after police officers heard a call of a robbery in the 2900 block of North Mildred Avenue about 7:40 p.m. and apprehended the two men on a Brown Line train the police had requested held at the Diversey station.

The 22-year-old victim of the Mildred Avenue robbery later identified the two men arrested on the Brown Line train as the men who robbed him, and they were carrying some of the stolen items, Mirabelli said. One of them was also carrying a handgun.

Marcus Parker, 23, of the 9800 block of South Maplewood Ave. in Evergreen Park, was charged with two felony counts of armed robbery with a firearm, two felony counts of aggravated robbery along with one misdemeanor count each of unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a firearm Without a valid FOID card and possession of ammunition without a valid FOID card.

Joel Shavers, 22, of the 10400 block of South Peoria Street in Chicago was charged with three felony counts of armed robbery with a firearm.

They were expected to appear in bond court Monday.

        He did call black animals and YOU ARE A RACIST. However, it is only white people that like to live around animals. I am not talking about cats and dogs but wild animals that should be in the jungle. You people like to live close to them, LIKE IN THE SAME HOUSE. Therefore, when one of you pecan mind white people call us animals, monkeys etc. I am not offended because I know who the real animals are. NOW RUN AND TELL THAT.

      @NWA, What is your major malfunction? Why would you defend the likes of these two? Violent armed robbers and still, you defend them. I just don’t get it. Do you really hold guys like this in high regard? Are these the type of role models you would want for your kids? If so, you really have some serious problems, Mr. NWA. S.O.S.
