The 15-year-old male was walking behind Honey Jam Cafe, 120 E. Boughton Rd., at 3:42 p.m. on the Winston Village side when he was approached by three males. One of the offenders displayed a handgun. 

All three offenders pushed the victim to the ground. They then removed his white hoodie, T-shirt and blue jeans and fled on foot. The victim returned home in his shorts. After putting his shoes back on, he called the police.

Officers were unable to locate the offenders at the time of the call, but were able to gather information through the preliminary investigation.

The incident remains under investigation.

Where are you going here?Look I'll apologize again.Who knows on the Blogg if you're lying or not? I can tell by your last 2 messages that you have diarhea of the mouth.You talk too much. Nobody on this blogg needs to know where you lived,or where you are now! Now from this I also know your single w/5 kids & overwhelmed, have a car, and your sons age .In the 80's and 90's Bedford & Lee were okay. Winston Village was not, & still ain't.If I saw this happening I would 've helped no matter what color. Stop talking your personal info. I bet you the gun was a replica or an air pistal. You may not believe in hand guns...I do, but you can still take classes to learn the differences of appearance. Even ask a good gun owner. Once you know at that time, the situation is changed. It's too bad your son has dealt w/ this.Thugs are in Win Vill.That's why Cops are moon liting as armed security at Portillo's. You confuse me now that you do acknowledge thugs in Win Vill. They are nothing but punks learning/practicing how to be real ones. I have been face to face w/ them.I've chased them in my truck. I have caught one and pulled him out the drivers window and gave a 1 minute beating. His partner stayed in the car like I told him, when it was his turn he started to cry, I laughed & called him a pussy. DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! I was all over watching my 3 sons.The bat to the head kid is lucky he's alive his head looked like a split open grape.He had no business being in Beaconridge.

A man can be a perfect gentleman. That doesn't mean he is dreamless. I wouldn't know. If you're fine w/ him then he's a good neighbor. I wouldn't know. Actually I meant it to be funny....I couldn't resist the oportunity w/ the MJ (RIP) thing. But actually Eddy Money ain't my bag either but couldn't think of a joke for him other than the stupid geico commercial w/ him.

Let it go poker face. Please. If you want to keep it up, just let me know where you want to meet me and what day and time. We can talk about this face to face. I'm in Bolingbrook. Otherwise, drop it and leave Missy alone please. Move on to another story and bash another victim. Thanks.

It's the police that are slow. Not the patch. Makes me nervous these days. Reading all these unsolved police reports shows me they are slow at everything. It is making me think harder about getting my own gun soon.
