Two 16-year-old boys are charged in three separate attacks late Sunday and early Monday on the North Side -- including one in Roscoe Village. Police say they allegedly beat a victim in the head with a baseball bat and stole a minivan.

"He was clobbered with a baseball bat and hit repeatedly,'' according to a Chicago police captain.

The 16-year olds are among four teens police were questioning in the attacks on Tuesday.

Two of the teens were released without being charged.
