• Second defendant in pizzeria robberies lands 16 years in jail

ELGIN, Ill. - Elgin teen-ager John Southammavong, 19, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his role in two Chicago-area pizza robberies last summer, one of which resulted in a gun fight, on July 13.

Southammavong pled guilty in March to robbing pizza parlors in Carol Stream and Itasca. Last August, Southammavong and Paul Chanthalusy, 18, robbed Sir Nick's Pizza in Carol Stream of more than $1,700. Two days later, they attempted to rob Frank's Pizza in Itasca. But the robbery fell apart when the restaurant's owner, Felipe Perez, attacked Chanthalusy. Chanthalusy shot Perez in the leg before Perez wrestled the gun from him and shot both robbers in the leg.

Chanthalusy was sentenced to 16 years in prison in late March (See story: Elgin teen gets 16 years for pizzeria robberies). Prosecutors said the two teens were members of the same Elgin street gang.
