A 19-year old Niles man reported that just after 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, five men, approximately 20 years old, pulled up to the driveway of his home, in the 9200 block of Woodland, and began swinging at him, police said.
According to the report, the victim said he didn't know why they were attacking him; however, police said the victim is a self-admitted gang member.
He sustained injuries to both of his hands, and told police that may have happened when he struck one of the assailants in the face, according to the report. Police said the victim was not cooperative and refused to provide more details about the battery. He did not want to sign complaints, and insisted on driving to the hospital on his own. Police filed a report.
Manager becomes suspicious, finds two phones, worth $1,200, missing
The manager of a retail store in the 9600 block of Golf Road reported that on Sunday just after 2:35 p.m., three men in their early 20s entered the store separately within a few minutes of each other. Two of them approached a sales representative and began asking questions about telephones. The third suspect approached a display area and a few minutes later left the store. The remaining two suspects then immediately left the store. That triggered suspicion in the manager, who checked around the store and noticed that two Galaxy S phones were missing from the display, according to the report. The manager said video surveillance is available but at a remote location. The value of the telephones is estimated at $1,200.00, police said. They are investigating.
