An 87-year-old World War II veteran was walking from a corner store in West Englewood after buying lottery tickets when he was attacked by three people who smashed his glasses, knocked out his hearing aid and broke his dentures, then went through his pockets and fled with his wallet, according to his family and police.
Police say Rashon Williams, 20, of the 1400 block of Lincoln Avenue in Calumet City, was charged with robbery of a senior citizen, and Michael Protho, 17, of the 3000 block of Woodworth Place in Hazel Crest, was charged with robbery of a senior citizen and reckless conduct.
According to court records, Williams was paroled in March after serving time for a pair of 2009 convictions, one aggravated robbery and a vehicular hijacking.
Bond was set at $500,000 each for Williams and Protho. Both are scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 6.
Juvenile authorities will take over in the case of the 15-year-old, who was also charged with robbery of a senior, police said.
