CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

SUN DEC 14 2003 — Jose Robles, 24, of the 0-100 block of North Dryden Avenue in Arlington Heights was arrested and charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking and two counts of armed robbery after pointing a gun at two teenagers, robbing them of their cell phones and cash,  and stealing their 1994 Buick Century.

Two 16-year-olds and a 15-year-old, also from Arlington Heights, who accompanied Robles were also arrested. The carjacking was reported to have occurred 5 p.m. Saturday December 13, 2003 in a parking lot in the 1000 block of East Northwest Highway in Arlington Heights. Two teens werer sitting in a Buick Century when Robles asked for a lift. The driver of the Buick Century agreed to give Robles when the three teenage suspects also jumped in the back seat of the car. Robles later pulled out a gun and ordered the driver to pull over in the 1400 block of East Davis Street, where the driver and passenger were robbed and the car was stolen. The victims, an 18-year-old from Arlington Heights and a 17-year-old from Mt. Prospect, were not harmed.

Police alert on their shifts from roll call the following Sunday night, spotted the car and attempt to make a traffic stop, but a pursuit began. The offenders headed northbound on Haddow Avenue in the Buick Century, followed by marked and unmarked police cars in pursuit. The driver of the Buick Century attempted a right turn from northbound Haddow Avenue onto eastbound Marshall Street but could not make the turn and crashed into the front porch of a house on Marshall Street.

Robles and two of the teen suspects were inside the Buick Century. No injuries were reported and the third teen suspect was arrested at his home.

One of the 16-year-old suspects was also suspected in an attempted armed robbery in Mt. Prospect in previous weekend crime. A 45-year-old woman reported to police on a Saturday night that the teen suspect pointed a gun at her and attempted to steal her purse while she stood outside her home in the 900 block of Quince Lane. She told police she screamed, and the teen fled without her purse.
