About 20 minutes later, around 4:30 p.m., Western Springs Police Chief Brian Budds says those same men are believed to have tried to rob a 15-year-old student outside the south campus on 49th and Willow Springs Road.
Chief Budds says the robber told the teen to give him his money, the teen declined and was then shown some kind of weapon.READ MORE: Jussie Smollett Returns To Witness Stand Tuesday
