Here is the story from the Chicago Tribune:

A South Side man and a 15-year-old boy are accused of stealing an iPhone from a man in the Edgewater neighborhood this week, and a second stolen phone also was recovered, police said today.

Michael P. Gray, 21, of the 3000 block of East 80th Street, was charged with robbery while the boy was charged as a juvenile, also with robbery, police said.

Police were already in the area of the 1200 block of West Rosemont Avenue about 3 a.m. Monday when they saw the two push the victim on the ground while the juvenile shouted: “Grab his phone, grab his phone,’’ according to a police report.

Gray ripped the black iPhone from the victim’s hand and they fled northbound on foot, but the Rogers Park District officers apprehended them almost immediately, police said.

During a search of the juvenile another iPhone was found, a white one which had been taken in a separate crime that happened the day before, police said.

It was not known immediately if the boy was charged in that case.

Gray was booked into Cook County Jail Tuesday after a judge set a bail of $100,000, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.
