Police: Teen Boys Attack, Steal, Send Victim to the Hospital

A group of 8 to 10 teenagers attacked a 14-year and a 16-year-old Sept. 22, sending one to the hospital.

One teenager was sent to the hospital after a group of eight to 10 male teenagers attacked both a 14-year-old from Bolingbrook and a 16-year-old from Cicero Sept. 22. 

The incident took place at 7:55 p.m. at Blair Lane and Mayfield Drive, according to Bolingbrook police. 

After the group attacked, the 16-year-old was able to escape after being punched in the head twice. The 14-year-old from Bolingbrook was knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked and punched. While he was on the ground, the group rummaged through his pockets and stole his phone. They also stole his backpack, which contained various items. 

The group then fled on foot. 

The victim was transported to the Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.  He was treated and released. 

The incident remains under investigation.

Another great group of well educated scum . Now they face Agg.battery and robbery charges and they should be charged as adults!

My son got beat up and robbed seven years ago at age 13 by a group of six youth, at 5 PM in the afternoon at the playground behind the BRAC. Luckily, five were arrested, since the police apprehended one at the scene of their next mugging, at the playground behind the high school, and got all the names from him. They got off with probation - two were over 17 and tried as adults. It always makes me sick to think about it.

You have nothing to say, yet you still try to say something. We all heard you before. Criminals are scum, drunk drivers should be run over by cars, molesters should be molested, animal abusers should be eaten by dogs and on and on. You're getting boring.

What do you expect from pack mentality? I bet individually they are a bunch of real tough guys,kicking someone on the ground. Most of them WILL end up in prison because of their defunct thought process that lead to them commiting this crime. I hope they are caught and IF they have parents that care,the parents beat the daylights out of them.

Where the parenting?? I have a 13 yr old and a 19 yr old, the would NEVER think about hurting someone! This all stems on how they are raised!! Unreal, charge them as adults and make them learn their lesson!

Steve prove your facts! Criminals are scum, Other than that you talk like a SFA! Drunk drivers should get automatic and mandatory jail time , molesters should be castrated and animal abusers should be jailed too! Do you have a problem with that ? Or are you a criminal sympathizer!

Screw you. I said no such things. You're like a little kid, always screaming, "Look at me! Look at me! Everyone look at me!"

To Vera Volpe Argentata: Consider it a badge of honor to be vilified by Steve.

I think they find these morally deficient punks they take them out and drop them off in a remote area of Chicago without anything and see how they do. Or maybe that's home to them. What bothers me, were there no cars going by that could call and get these kids help, or no neighbors that heard screaming or yelling from a pack of teens encouraging each other on? What's wrong with this picture?

Colin Flaherty is the expert on this mob phenomena. Check him out.

Maybe they came out and crowded around to watch.
