Two men were arrested in Bolingbrook after they attacked and tried to rob a man who was going to purchase a .22-caliber rifle from them, police said.
About 4:30 p.m. Friday, a man reportedly went to Osage Drive in Bolingbrook to meet with Marco J. Suzana, 19, of Joliet, and Amir D. Harrell, 18, of Plainfield, said Deputy Director R.J. Knezevich of the Joliet Metropolitan Area Narcotics Squad.
The man was trying to buy a .22-caliber rifle from Suzana and Harrell, but he didn’t make the purchase because both men attacked him and tried to rob him, Knezevich said. The would-be gun buyer suffered minimal injuries and required no medical attention, he said.
Officers with MANS arrested Suzana and Harrell soon after the incident, Knezevich said.
Knezevich said officers found a .380-caliber handgun on Suzana.
Both men were taken to the Will County jail.
Suzana was booked about 9:25 p.m. on probable cause of unlawful sale of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition, possession of a firearm without a valid firearm owner’s identification card, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and armed robbery, jail records show.
Harrell was booked soon after on probable cause of unlawful sale of a firearm and aggravated robbery, according to jail records.
Bond was set at $100,000 bond for both Suzana and Harrell. Each of them must post $10,000 for their release from jail.
Suzana and Harrell are scheduled to appear for a bond hearing at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Will County Courthouse.
