Two Men Charged With Attempting To Rob Priest
CHICAGO (STMW) – Two men have been charged after allegedly threatening, harassing and demanding money from a 73-year-old priest in the Back of the Yards neighborhood last week.
In the morning hours of Nov. 4, Deandrea Little, 22, and Markquis Little, 20, allegedly demanded money from a priest in a church in the 4700 block of South Damen Avenue, police said.
The two had a history of asking the priest for money, and police estimate that the priest had given the alleged robbers approximately $10,000 in “numerous previous occasions.”
Deandrea Little, of the 3900 block of West Lexington Street, and Markquis Little, of the 5400 block of South Ashland Avenue, were each charged with felony intimidation, felony stalking and felony attempted robbery, police said.
Police could not confirm any familial relationship between the two men.
Both are scheduled to appear in bond court Monday.
