CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Two brothers were charged Monday with allegedly stealing an iPhone and a wallet from a man Friday in the Northwest Side Belmont Cragin neighborhood - and one of the men pulled a gun after officers found him at a cell phone store.

Dion Rutledge, 25, of the 1100 block of North Harding Avenue, was charged with armed robbery with a firearm, possession of a firearm by a felon, two counts of resisting a police officer, possession of cannabis and possession of firearm without FOID, according to a release from police News Affairs.

Delshun Rutledge, 30, of the 2100 block of North Mango Avenue, was charged with one count of armed robbery with a firearm.

Shakespeare District officers responded about 5 p.m. Friday to the 1700 block of West North Avenue where an 18-year-old man said he was robbed at gunpoint in the 2100 block of North Cicero Avenue after 11:30 p.m. Thursday as he walked home from work, the release said.

One man held the victim at gunpoint while a second man rummaged through his pockets, taking his smart phone, cash and wallet before fleeing, the release said.

The victim told police he tracked his stolen smart phone to a nearby store, the release said.

When they entered the store, the victim identified Dion Rutledge as his attacker, the release said.

As officers began patting Rutledge down for weapons, he pulled a semi automatic handgun from his waistband but was quickly subdued, the release said.

Rutledge was arrested and the weapon, which was stolen, was recovered, the release said. An investigation led to the identification and arrest of Delshun Rutledge.

Both Rutledges are expected to appear Tuesday in bond court.
