On Monday, alderwoman Christine Ingrassia was sitting on the porch of her home on Michigan Avenue when she and a friend were approached by two men. Each had a gun and demanded the victims’ valuables. They took Ingrassia’s phone and $20 from her friend, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Ingrassia then used an app to track her phone and called the police. That led officers to Dinish Watson and Candree Akins. Watson had a pistol on him when he was arrested.

It was later revealed that the 20-year-old Akins and the 22-year old Watson are from Cahokia and East St. Louis respectively. Both were charged Monday with two counts of robbery and two counts of armed criminal action.

El lunes, la concejal Christine Ingrassia estaba sentada en el porche de su casa en Michigan Avenue cuando dos hombres se acercaron a ella y a una amiga. Cada uno tenía un arma y exigió los objetos de valor de las víctimas. Tomaron el teléfono de Ingrassia y $20 de su amiga, de acuerdo con el St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Ingrassia luego usó una aplicación para rastrear su teléfono y llamó a la Policía. Eso llevó a los oficiales hasta los asaltantes, Dinish Watson y Candree Akins. Watson tenía una pistola consigo cuando fue arrestado.

Más tarde se reveló que Akins, de 20 años, y Watson, de 22, son de Cahokia y East St. Louis, respectivamente. Ambos fueron acusados el lunes de dos cargos de robo y dos cargos de acción criminal armada.
