Hey Rahm? Who Raised This Kid?
A 13-year-old boy held a gun to the head of a cabdriver and stole $200 and a cellphone from him, Evanston police said Friday, announcing the boy’s arrest in that and another robbery this week.
Wednesday about 1 a.m., the boy grabbed a cabdriver around the neck and robbed him at gunpoint in his taxi near Hovland Court and Emerson Street, said Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott. The boy stole cash and a cell phone from the driver, police said. No weapon has been recovered.
