Four charged in Lakemoor beating, armed robbery

WOODSTOCK – Four people were arrested after what police are calling an arranged beating and armed robbery in Lakemoor.

Two women – Amie N. Ogg, 31, of 4017 Seneca Road, Wonder Lake, and Mary Elmore, 31, of 120 W. Benson Ave., Cortland – arranged to pick up the alleged victim and, later, two men, who authorities said are high-ranking members of the "City Knights" gang in McHenry.

They, along with Charles A. Campo II, 28, also of 4017 Seneca Road, and Robert F. Moore, 28, 7509 N. Oak St., Wonder Lake, were charged in connection with the May 20 incident.

According to police, the group started beating the man – who was an ex-boyfriend of Ogg – in the vehicle. The car eventually pulled over in the area of Route 120 and Darrell Road in the McHenry County portion of Lakemoor, when they picked up a rock and continued beating the man, Lakemoor Deputy Police Chief George Manis said.

The man was medically treated, but Manis wouldn't comment on the extent of his injuries. Manis said the group, armed with a rock, robbed the alleged victim of one of his shoes.

The defendants each were charged with armed robbery, robbery, aggravated battery with great bodily harm and mob action. The most serious allegation against them, armed robbery, is punishable by between six and 30 years in prison.

Ogg and Elmore have since been released after posting $1,000 bond. Campo and Moore remain in custody of the McHenry County Jail in lieu of $50,000 and $30,000 bond, respectively.

Campo has made headlines in the past with his role in a 2011 arson in McHenry. For that crime he was sentenced to four years in prison.

Ogg and Elmore have pending misdemeanor cases in McHenry County. Ogg for battery, and Elmore for domestic battery.
