A quick-thinking teenager protected his mom and sister, helping alert police to a dangerous situation at a North Side restaurant by texting his dad after a robber threatened the rest of the family.
It was 6 p.m. on Sunday evening when a man walked in, said he had a gun and demanded money. Thanks to the quick-thinking 15-year-old, however, that man is behind bars. It was a simple seven-word text. "Don't come, robber in here, call 911," the text read. That's what Nathen Lane sent from his mother's phone while they were locked in a back bathroom of the Lakeview coffee shop Sunday evening.
