An investigation determined the suspects -- six adults and three juveniles -- used baseball bats as weapons when a fight broke out in the 400 block of Berkshire Drive during an attempted robbery, Crystal Lake police said Thursday.

A robbery victim stabbed two 18-year-olds with a knife during the altercation, causing serious but nonlife-threatening injuries to Tyler A. Novak of Lake in the Hills and Thomas S. Madura of Crystal Lake.

The robbery suspects, including three 16-year-old boys, were arrested Wednesday, police said. In addition to Novak and Madura, the other 18-year-olds arrested were: Geoffrey M. Miller of Lake in the Hills; Dylan P. Macari of Huntley; and Crystal Lake residents Brandon D. Rosas and Davon E. Manning.

All nine were charged with vehicular invasion, aggravated robbery, attempted aggravated robbery, mob action, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and two counts of aggravated battery in a public place.
