Robbery suspect dragged to police station by his own mother after she ID’d him in a photo

Zion Brown, 18, was dragged to the local police station in Calumet City near Chicago after she recognized her son in surveillance photos released by the police, and forced him to turn himself in for the armed robbery of a train conductor on Tuesday.

The teen was seen on local media by his mother after police released photos of a suspect who was accused of stealing $100 in cash by holding a Metra train conductor at gunpoint. Brown’s mother recognized her son, who was seen in the photos wearing a mask and looking directly into the security camera.

Defense attorneys for Brown argued the defendant was hungry when he robbed the conductor for food money. The defense asked the judge to be compassionate toward hungry college students. Judge Maryam Ahmad ordered the defendant held without bond and scheduled his next court appearance for March 4. The judge rejected the defense’s argument.
