Two Chicago teenagers are facing charges after allegedly attempting to steal a 60-year-old man's cellphone.

Police say the victim was walking around 11:30 a.m. in the South Loop neighborhood when Fred Wolfe, 18, got out of a car and tried to take the man's phone from his hand.

A struggle took place and Wolfe was unable to take the phone. The suspect then got back into the waiting car, which police said was being driven by 19-year-old Armonie Lewis.
