Two Charged, Another Wanted After Robbery and Battery Incident (Orland Park, IL) — On December 10, 2023 at 6:11 p.m., the Orland Park Police Department responded to a report of a robbery at Life Time Fitness located at 16333 Lagrange Rd in Orland Park. Upon arrival, officers learned there were three individuals who were suspected of committing robbery against one victim.

The investigation revealed that the victim had a verbal altercation with three previous acquaintances, Sami Hirmiz, Hadi Abu-Atelah and Nooh Masoud in a common area of Life Time Fitness. The victim entered the locker room and the three suspects followed him in. Inside the locker room, the three suspects began to physically assault the victim by kicking and punching him in the face and body numerous times. While the victim was on the ground, one of the suspects removed the victim’s cell phone from his pocket and the suspects fled the building. The victim was transported to the hospital where it was determined that he suffered a dislocated shoulder as a result of the assault.

Investigators learned that Sami Hirmiz was scheduled to appear in court on 01/04/2024 regarding an unrelated matter.
