Two teenagers were arrested Friday morning in Elgin after they punched and kicked a pizza deliveryman to steal pizza and other items the night before, authorities said.

Tomichael L. Maye, 17, and a 15-year-old boy, both from Elgin, were arrested around 8 a.m. Friday at a residence in the 300 block of S. Belmont Ave., Elgin Police Cmdr. Ana Lalley said. Both were charged with felony armed robbery and felony vehicular invasion.

Officers had responded to a report of a robbery at about 11:40 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of South Belmont Avenue. The deliveryman said he was going to deliver a pizza in the area when he was approached by two males who demanded the food.

The two males began to punch and kick him until they were able to steal the pizza, the deliveryman's wallet and a GPS device from his vehicle, police said. One of the attackers displayed a knife, police said.

The deliveryman suffered minor injuries. Police arrested the teens based on descriptions provided by the deliveryman and investigative work, Lalley said.

Maye is scheduled to appear Friday morning for bond call in Kane County's Elgin branch court. The 15-year-old was to be transferred to the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center to await a detention hearing.
