2 people arrested on attempted murder charges in Pekin
Two people face attempted murder charges after an elderly man was beaten last month in Pekin.
Pekin police officer Billie Ingles said police responded July 12 to a robbery report in the 2300 block of Broadway Road, where officers found the injured man.
Following an investigation with the Illinois State Police, Pekin officers arrested Gage Burgess and Savanna McKinley on Thursday for attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, and aggravated battery in connection with the incident.
Bond is set at $1 million for both Burgess and McKinley.
