The victim, a 41-year-old man, was working on a vehicle in a detached garage on the property. He was approached by three male subjects who entered the garage and confronted him. One of the subjects was armed with a metal pipe.
The three ordered the victim to give them his cash, cell phone, and the jewelry he was wearing. The victim handed the men everything they demanded. Then, one of the men, later identified as Eric Giles, 22, of the 1400 block of Leith Avenue, Waukegan, shoved the victim to the ground. One of the other offenders then struck the victim several times with the metal pipe. The three fled.
