Three teens have been charged in connection with the early Sunday attack of a University of Illinois at Chicago student who was beaten and robbed aboard a Chicago Transit Authority bus near campus.

Akeem J. Manago, 18, Christopher Jackson, 17, and a 15-year-old boy have been charged in connection with the robbery. 

CTA video footage assisted in their identification, police said.

They're accused of robbing a UIC student aboard a No. 12 CTA bus at 1300 W. Roosevelt Rd. at 12:05 a.m. Sunday.

It was one of two incidents that prompted UIC and Chicago police to issue community alerts. It's unclear whether the three charged were involved in the other incident.

Manago, of the 1200 block of West 14th Street is charged with one count each of aggravated battery in a public place, armed robbery, felony unlawful use of a weapon, as well as misdemeanor counts of firearm without a valid FOID card and possession of ammunition without a valid FOID.

Jackson, of the 4300 block of West Gladys, is charged with one felony count each of aggravated battery in a public place and armed robbery with a dangerous weapon, police said.

The 15-year-old is charged with one felony count each of armed robbery with a dangerous weapon and aggravated battery in a public place.

Jackson and Manago are scheduled for bond hearings on Thursday. Court information for the juvenile was not immediately available.
