The men, ages 18 and 19, were in the skate park at 12:20 a.m. near East Roosevelt Road and South Michigan Avenue when three males walked up, implied they had a weapon and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.

The suspects stole the victims’ cellphones, then ran away, police said. No injuries were reported.
