A 28-year-old Lisle man has been indicted on charges he pushed a physically handicapped clerk and stole beer from a convenience store in February.
Tyris Robinson remains held in DuPage County Jail on $300,000 bail. On Tuesday, a grand jury indicted him on multiple counts that include aggravated battery, robbery, retail theft, burglary and attempted aggravated robbery.
According to the indictment, Robinson entered the 7-Eleven store on Ogden Avenue and while claiming to have a gun. Robinson had placed his hand in his pocket and pointed it as if it were a gun. Robinson then pushed the male clerk, whose disability was not specified, and took several cans of beer.
Robinson also has a pending misdemeanor retail theft case related to a tool that was stolen from just days later. The item, a conduit bender, is valued at $30. The indictment indicates Robinson has a previous conviction for armed robbery, but details of that case were not mentioned.
Robinson was convicted of driving under the influence related to a 2009 traffic stop in Elmhurst. He has been resentenced at least twice and sent to jail for failing to pay fines associated to the case. Robinson still owes approximately $2,000, court records show.
