16-year-old charged w/ Akira robbery; Police search for 9 other suspects


A 16-year-old boy was charged after a mob of people stormed into a Bucktown clothing store Monday evening and not only robbed the store, but attacked employees with pepper spray. Store owners at the Akira store at 1814 W. North Ave. said their shop was robbed around 9 p.m. Monday. They said a group of about 10 people entered the store just as employees prepared to close. One employee reportedly asked the group to leave, but said some of the suspects grabbed clothes worth hundreds of dollars and headed for the door without paying.
