During the investigation, officers learned that a juvenile victim had come to Freeport in response to a social media sale of an iPhone. During the exchange, the suspect, a 16 year-old male from Freeport, removed a handgun from his pocket and robbed the victim of cash and an iPad. The handgun was later determined to not be real.
The juvenile suspect was apprehended shortly after the call and was charged with Aggravated Robbery. Afterwards, the juvenile arrestee was transported to the Kane County Juvenile Detention Center to await his detention hearing.
