A man and teen accused of trying to rob and stabbing another teen in downtown La Salle have gone before a judge. 

27 year old Brandon Atkinson of La Salle and 17 year old Julian Molina were in court Thursday for felony robbery and aggravated battery charges. 

They’re accused of trying to rob a 17 year old boy from Mendota Wednesday night on First Street in La Salle.  The Mendota teen was flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria for multiple stab wounds.
