About midnight on Sept. 21, the teenager got a phone call from one of the suspects who said they were having car trouble near his home in unincorporated Wheaton. He asked the victim to bring some money and assist them, a statement from the sheriff’s office said.

The victim got dressed and went to assist the suspect, but ne of the other suspects walked up and asked if he was looking for the person who called, then three of the suspects started kicking and punching him.

They took his cell phone and wallet, then drove away, police said. The teen ran back to his home. Police say the suspects picked a victim they considered wealthy so they could buy drugs and alcohol.

Allmon, Rodriguez and Deger are scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday. The juveniles are being held in the Kane County Youth Home.
