Two boys, who have been charged in a July 25 robbery near the 103rd Street Metra Station that left a 72-year-old woman with a shattered pelvis, appeared in court on Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The boys, ages 14 and 15, were charged as juveniles with robbery, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm to a senior citizen, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, aggravated battery on the public way, and theft.
The woman was cutting through an alley on 103rd Street near the train tracks when the two boys came up on her from behind and grabbed her purse while knocking her down, the report reads.
Contrary to the prosecution's request, the two boys were released to their parents and were placed on a curfew by a judge. The older of the two is set for trial next month.
