Evanston Teen Charged In Pizza Robbery, Police Say

Evanston police arrested an 18-year-old man from Evanston, saying he robbed a Sarpino’s Pizza delivery driver at knifepoint on Sept. 8.

Evanston police charged an 18-year old Evanston man with robbery, alleging that he stole two pizzas from a delivery driver at knifepoint in early September. 

Terrell L. Farmby, of the 100 block of Ridge Avenue, was arrested Wednesday, Oct. 24, and charged with armed robbery, a felony, according to a press release from the police department. Police say he and another man held a knife to a Sarpino’s Pizza delivery driver at 3:15 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, then stole two pizzas from the driver.

The victim later identified Farmby in a lineup, according to police. Detectives are still searching for a second suspect. 

Farmby is scheduled to appear in room 105 of Cook County Circuit Court in Skokie at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20.

OK, Chuck, I give up. Send 'em all to a Devil's Island, probably before a trial. Or maybe just shoot them immediately with a bullet paid for by their families. That should do it. les Miserab.

If you think that what this man did was about a slice of pizza...you are dead wrong. This is classic thug behavior. Grabs a knife andf threatens to kill someone defenseless. Doesn't threaten a true bad-ass.... he goes after the pizza-boy. I agree that society is responsible to teach this young man a trade but it should be done while he does hard time in prison. Hopefully while he's there he'll learn metal-work....... making edge-weapons from household items. If he's lucky his quality education at ETHS will come into play for disease prevention activities. He can insist his three or four new pals use condoms because....condoms prevent heartbreak. Think this is harsh??? I promise you this..... if he had held a knife to your throat you look at this differently.

Teddy Jack Eddy.... A "classic thug" doesn't carry a knife.. he carries a gun.. if it was about more than pizza.. you better believe, the delivery guy would be dead. Everyone has so many comments, thoughts and suggestions, yet have any of you reached out to these "thugs"? This is happening in our own community and when was the last time you did something to take part in becoming part of the solution? Locking them up and throwing away the key doesn't solve anything. How many of you are involved in activisim in and around our community?. You all have so much to say, yet you have done absolutely NOTHING!!!

Interesting comments. I work at ETHS and know both young men well. Terrell was getting some looks from some smaller colleges but I think with the partial scholarships being offered there wasn't enough money to send him off. Both guys were nice kids at ETHS and were never violent. Both struggled in school though. And at least one got high a lot. This is more about drugs than anything else... Just like most of the "thugs" that are stealing cell phones in schools, on the CTA or from anywhere else. The cell phones can be sold at Game Stop no questions asked. That money then goes to buy drugs. We need to figure out the drug problem and a lot of the crimes in this area (and others) will go down some.
