Friday, April 11, 2014 Four people have been charged in connection with the battery and robbery of a 19-year-old man in unincorporated Palos Park, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

On April 6, Sheriff’s Police Detectives received a report that a 19-year-old Oak Lawn man had been severely beaten by several males in the 12900 block of South 83rd Court. According to the Sheriff’s Police investigation, the victim met a woman at the location who led him inside a garage. Men inside the garage then beat the victim with a metal object and kicked him. One of the offenders took cash from the victim.

The victim was able to get away and get to a hospital, where Sheriff’s police were called.

A metal stick believed to be used in the battery was recovered in the garage. During the course of their investigation, detectives identified four offenders: Julian Lopez, 23, of Worth, Alex Ryan, 22, of Worth, Manuel Juarez, 24, of Burbank, and Nicoletta Tzinares, 18, of Palos Park.

All four were charged with aggravated battery: great bodily harm and with robbery. They all appeared in bond court at the Bridgeview Courthouse on April 9. Bond for Lopez was set at $250,000; Ryan $300,000; Tzinares $100,000; Juarez, $250,000 and no bond on a previous, drug related case.

Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
