Just prior to store closing, two offenders entered the store and announced a robbery. One offender displayed a black handgun and the other had a large duffle bag. The offenders then stole approximately $2,400 in currency as well as a quantity of cellular phones from the store. The two offenders then exited the store and ran to a waiting vehicle parked on Columbia Street just north of the business. It is believed a third suspect then drove the getaway vehicle with the two other offenders eastbound on Columbia to North Avenue, exiting Elmhurst. No store employees or customers were injured during the incident.
Police officers spoke to witnesses and identified the suspect vehicle as a gray 2006 Infiniti sedan with tinted windows. At approximately 9:00 p.m. Elmhurst investigators located the suspect vehicle abandoned on the 4400 block of W. Jackson in Chicago and impounded it. Detectives are canvassing the area for nearby security video cameras and evidence technicians have processed the scene for evidence.
The suspects are described as:
- Suspect #1: A Black male, wearing a white surgical mask, black hooded sweatshirt, black “skinny” jeans, and carrying a blue duffle bag .
- Suspect #2: A Black male, wearing a black mask, a black T-shirt with a black and red logo on the front of it, blue jeans with torn knees, and armed with a handgun.
Anyone with video footage of the area or with any information about this incident is asked to contact the Elmhurst Police Department at 630-530-3050.
