Communications officers helped direct the patrol officers who were pursuing the suspects on foot.

The six are charged with beating and robbing a 14-year-old boy who was walking to the library, breaking his glasses and taking $20. The victim had called his mother who approached the six suspects in a McDonald’s restaurant where they called her derogatory names and threatened to shoot her.
