CHICAGO — Two men have been accused of tying up and stabbing a 17-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man during a robbery inside a Portage Park apartment, police said.
David Cross, 36, of the 3700 block of North Cicero Avenue and Jeffery Cross, 35, of the 7800 block of West Carlisle Drive in suburban Hanover Park, were arrested in connection with Monday's attack, police said.
They were each charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of armed robbery with a dangerous weapon, two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and two counts of aggravated unlawful restraint, all felonies.
The two are accused of trying up and stabbing the victims during a robbery in an apartment about 5:50 a.m. Monday, according to a statement to police. The scene of the crime was in the same block where David Cross lives, according to police.
The victims were able to escape to a nearby McDonald's at Cicero Avenue and Addison Street and get help, cops said. Police said David and Jeffery Cross were arrested on the scene.
It was not immediately clear if or how the suspects are related to each other.
Both men are expected to appear in bond court on Tuesday.
