Robbery suspect who left his phone number is shot by police
By Dan P. Blake | Tribune reporter
6:18 PM CDT, March 25, 2008


Robbers don't usually leave phone numbers behind, but on Monday, at a Northwest Side muffler shop, a man asked employees to give him a call when their boss came back to open a safe, an employee said Tuesday.

When the 18-year-old returned a few hours later, plainclothes Chicago police officers shot and wounded him, police said. Ruben Zarate of the 5100 of West Schubert Avenue was charged Tuesday with attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault of a police officer, the Cook County state's attorney's office said.

The incident started about 8 a.m., when the masked man, armed with a revolver, came in to Velasquez Mufflers For Less at 2600 N. Laramie Ave. and began demanding money, said Jose Sida, 37, a mechanic.

Employees told him they had little money and couldn't open the safe, so the man left two phone numbers for them to call when the owner returned with the combination, Sida said.

"He said, 'You guys better call me because otherwise I'm going to come back to shoot you,'" Sida said.

Instead, an employee called Chicago police.

Officers dressed in plainclothes came to the shop and told employees to call the man, Sida said. The man returned about noon, wearing the same mask and black clothing, Sida said. He also appeared to be armed with the same gun, Sida said.

The officers told employees to get to the back of the shop when the man came and at least one ended up shooting him.

Mark Payne, a spokesman for the Independent Police Review Authority, said the man was treated at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for a gunshot wound. He confirmed that his agency was investigating the police-involved shooting but said that the inquiry would take six months to complete and that he could not release any details.

Police also declined to provide details of the shooting. Zarate is expected to appear for a bond hearing Wednesday at which more details could be released.

Sida said the teen's idea to leave his phone numbers was "stupid," but said employees were just following police instructions to call him back.

Employees now are worried the man's friends may return to get back at the shop employees for calling police.

"We followed police instructions, otherwise he would have come back for sure [to rob us]," Sida said.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

It is no industry secret that I have the attention span of a (2) yr old Meth Addict on the 3rd day of the dry out - I thought it said the cat died - Well then, glad all is well that ends well

Oh and the C- is pretty much on par for my abilities as I was raised under the notion via my Fraternity that "A C is a degree" - WORD!

Or, he goes to county and gets ass raped as a fresh faced 18 yr old and maybe even knifed when he tries to defend himself and becomes a better person from the experience - I try to find the silver lining the best I can

I hear ya on the silver lining man... You gotta search for em where you can today. I admit, I'm a pessimist, but I gotta think there's not too many people who turn their lives around and better society after a solid ass raping and getting shanked in prison.
