Officers arrested two 17-year-olds for a beating and robbery that occurred Oct. 9 on the 1400 block of W. Fargo Ave.

Beat officers monitoring the radio heard the flash message detailing the robbery and stopped two men matching the descriptions in an alley off the 1400 block of W. Jarvis Ave. 

The victim, 28, said he was on the sidewalk on the 5400 block of N. Sheridan Rd. talking on his cell-phone when he was robbed. A man had approached, pointed a gun at his face and ordered him into the alley, he said. 

A 53-year-old woman walking home from work was punched in the eye Oct. 15 on the 5200 block of N. Kenmore Ave. and robbed.

    Mama, there are actual printed copies of News-Star (and probably Inside-Booster too). It's rarely worth looking through. It's the sad remains of what once was a good local newspaper, published in a building that stood where the Peterson Garden Project installed the gardens on Howard this year.
