Three men reportedly robbed a 14-year-old boy at gun point Friday night in the Chatham neighborhood, officials said.

The men were riding in a gray 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix around 9:45 p.m. when they saw the boy and stopped him in the 600 block of East 85th Street, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Darius T. Redd, 21, allegedly pointed a .22 caliber revolver at the boy while Cornell J. Bryant, 27, removed a Boos Mobile Kyocera cell phone. The men also took a backpack contain white gym shoes and a state ID, the Tribune reported.

Police pulled over a call later that night and recovered the cell phone as well as the gun, which they found on a floor board on the passenger side.

Redd and Bryant were both charged with armed robbery along with Early Ware, who was identified as the driver of the car.

Redd and Ware were reportedly held on $250,000 bond and Bryant was held at $150,000.
