One of the people pushed the victim to the ground, displayed a handgun and demanded money, the victim said. The victim did not comply with the demand and the offenders fled on foot. The victim suffered minor injuries to his arm that did not require medical attention.

A short time later, police officers stopped three people in the 400 block of Brook Street and determined that one them, a 17-year-old juvenile, was the offender. Officers recovered the pellet gun and the juvenile was transported to the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center.
