"Police say three people entered a story " was it a fairy tale?... "A victim told polic" who is polic and why would any one want to talk to him/her?

"The other two offenders ran away. Deshay B. Robinson, 19, of Chicago, was taken into custody on felony retail theft charges...." Um, 'Deshay' - one need say nothing more, to know the score.
