Makiah M. Burns, 18, of Hazel Crest and a freshman at Loyola University Chicago faces two counts of armed robbery after being connected with a Bucktown robbery that occurred Monday.
Prosecutors say Burns drove two passengers in a 2008 black Honda Accord who have been connected to two robberies that night.
An article from the Chicago Sun-Times Wire reported the following:
Prosecutors say Burns drove two others in a 2008 black Honda Accord that stopped near the 2000 block of West Concord Place around 10 p.m. Monday.
The two robbers grabbed the bag of a 32-year-old man walking down the alley behind that address just west of Damen Avenue, Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Walsh said. He was walking a few blocks from his home, records show. The pair also demanded his wallet and showed what Walsh described as a “fake, silver revolver.”
One of the robbers fired a shot from a pellet gun, hitting the man in the left eye, she said. They grabbed his bag containing his laptop and phone, and took his wallet, too, containing about $100, the prosecutor told Judge Maria Kuriakos-Ciesil. They have not been arrested.
