Armed Robbery Under Investigation


On December 11, 2013, at approximately 10:50 a.m., Downers Grove Police responded to a report of an Armed Robbery at the Radio Shack located at 7319 Lemont Road.  A store employee said two men, wearing hooded sweatshirts, entered the store and displayed a small handgun. They demanded that the employee open locked cabinets in the store and proceeded to take electronic devices. The men pepper sprayed the employee and another customer before fleeing the store.  A witness outside the store said the men ran to a green Nissan and left the area driving westbound on 75th street.

Officers located the green Nissan, with three occupants, driving Northbound on I-355. The officers followed the vehicle to the area of Rt. 59 and Ferry Road, where the occupants stopped and ran from the vehicle. After a short foot pursuit, three suspects were taken into custody.

At this time the investigation is on-going.
