McHENRY – Two Chicago men have been charged with robbery after allegedly stealing a purse from a McHenry woman Monday morning.

Edwin Urgiles-Leon, 32, of 2400 W. Wilson Ave. in Chicago, and Johnny I. Suco-Buestan, 33, of 6616 S. Knox Ave. in Chicago, each face two Class 2 felony charges for robbery and theft after McHenry police pulled their vehicle over on Route 120 following the incident, according to a McHenry police news release.

Each Class 2 felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison.

According to McHenry police, Urgiles-Leon approached a woman in the Fawn Ridge Apartments parking lot located on the 1900 block of Orleans Street at 6:12 a.m. Monday. He took her purse as she exited the vehicle and then fled to a waiting car driven by Suco-Buestan, according to the press release.

The two men were stopped near the 2600 block of West Route 120. McHenry police said the men knowingly took property valued over $21,684.82 from the victim by use of force. Bond will be set at a court appearance Tuesday.
