Two Joliet men were arrested after they got into a confrontation with a boy over a stolen PlayStation video game system, police said.
About 6:30 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to the 1800 block of Knapp Street after receiving a report of a car that had been hit, Crest Hill Police Chief Ed Clark said.
When the officers arrived, they saw there was a car in a parking lot that was heavily damaged and spoke with the owners, as well as another person who apparently left the scene, Clark said.
The officers then learned that Jose F. Valdivia-Hernandez, 21, and Alejandro M. Valdivia-Hernandez, 18, both of the 400 block of Leach Avenue, drove to the parking lot to confront a boy over a stolen PlayStation video game system, Clark said.
One of the two men pulled out a firearm during the encounter, but officers did not find it at the scene, Clark said.
The boy who was confronted by the two men tried to leave the area in his car, Clark said, but both men used their car to block the his exit.
The boy still managed to drive away but scraped their car, Clark said.
Clark said Jose and Alejandro Valdivia-Hernandez both had knives.
After the investigation, the officers arrested both men. They were both jailed and were scheduled to appear in court for a bond hearing Monday afternoon.
