News-Sun

A 20-year-old Zion man and a 17-year-old Waukegan resident have been arrested in connection with a June robbery where a 20-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint in his Beach Park home, the Lake County Sheriff's Office reported on Friday.

Steven Bunch Jr., 20, of the 3000 block of Gabriel Avenue in Zion, was arrested Tuesday without incident as he left his home and was charged with two felonies related to the robbery, according to a sheriff's office statement.

The teen was charged with the same offenses, said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.

An investigation by the sheriff's office found that the teen had been at the Beach Park home earlier on June 12 for another reason, the circumstances of which are currently being investigated, Covelli said.

The teen is then alleged to have returned with Bunch to steal electronics and other valuables from the home, located in the 12000 block of West Wadsworth Road, according to Covelli and a news release.

One of them was armed with a BB gun, which they used to threaten the resident, Covelli said. The resident, who was not injured, thought the BB gun was a real firearm.

No one else had been at the home at the time, Covelli said. The resident had not known either the teen or Bunch prior to that earlier visit.

Bunch remains at the Lake County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bail, according to jail records. His next court date is scheduled for Dec. 5.

The teen's case was referred to juvenile court.
