On Aug. 11, Timothy A. Blue, now age 25 of Evanston, pled guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced by Judge Marguerite Quinn at the Circuit Court of Cook County 2nd Municipal District to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department. Mr. Blue committed an armed robbery with a handgun of three female Northwestern students in the 2000 block of Pratt Court back on Aug. 19, 2012, Commander Parrott said.
Mr. Blue had turned himself in to Evanston Police detectives on Aug. 22, 2012 with his attorney after surveillance footage was released by police that had Mr. Blue’s photo from a 7-11 convenience store in Skokie, IL where one of the victim’s credit cards was being used shortly after the incident, said the Commander. Mr. Blue was identified after his arrest in a line-up and charged with the crime. The second offender was never identified and is still wanted for the incident. Mr. Blue has been in-custody since his arrest.
