2 men charged with beating, robbing 86-year-old man

NBC Chicago – Two men were charged Friday with the beating and robbery of an 86-year-old man in the lobby of his South Side apartment building.

David Chambers, 49, of the 6900 block of South Yale and Freddie Hopson, 45, of the 800 block of West 52nd Street were each charged with one count of robbery to a person over the age of 60.

The suspects are accused of violently robbing the elderly man around noon April 30 in the 600 block of East 69th Street as the senior entered his building.

“I picked up my bag and the next thing I knew I was being grabbed and kicked,” the man told reporters.

Police said the 86-year-old, whose name has not been released, visited the bank that morning. Bank surveillance video shows an alleged offender watching the man withdraw cash and following him out the door.
