Four people have been charged with beating and robbing an Oak Lawn man last Sunday in an unincorporated area of Palos Township, according to Cook County sheriff’s police.

The 19-year-old victim met a woman and was led to a garage in the 12900 block of 83rd Court, where at least three men beat him with a metal object, kicked him and stole cash from him, police said.

They said the attackers left, and the man went to a hospital for treatment of his injuries where police were called.

An investigation of the incident led to charges of robbery and aggravated battery against Julian Lopez, 23, and Alex Ryan, 22, both of Worth; Manuel Juarez, 24, of Burbank; and Nicoletta Tzinares, 18, of Palos Park, sheriff’s police said.

Bail was set at $250,000 for Lopez; $300,000 for Ryan and $100,000 for Tzinares, who was released after posting a 10 percent bond. Juarez, who is also being held on a previous drug-related case, was ordered held without bail, police said.
