La Grange Park police investigate attempted Labor Day robbery

LA GRANGE PARK – An attempted robbery reportedly occurred Sept. 4 near Homestead Road and Garfield Avenue in La Grange Park, according to a public safety bulletin from the La Grange Park Police Department.

A 16-year-old on foot in the area was approached at about 7:30 p.m. by two white men, possibly in their early 20s, in a black-colored vehicle, the bulletin stated. The passenger in the vehicle demanded the victim give him "all his money."

The teen then ran northbound on Homestead Road to 7-Eleven, where he contacted police. Nothing was taken from the victim, and he was not injured, according to the bulletin.

The investigation into this incident continues, the bulletin stated.
