CHICAGO (CBS) – Armed robbers took about $2,400 and several cell phones from an AT&T store in Elmhurst on Monday night.
Elmhurst Police said they were investigating the robbery at the store at 291 North York Street just before 7 p.m., when the store closed. The two attackers entered the store and announced a robbery.
One of the offenders displayed a black handgun and the other had a large sports bag. The offenders exited the store after taking the cash and phones and ran to a waiting vehicle parked on Columbia Street just north of the business.
Police said they believe a third suspect then drove the getaway vehicle with the other two offenders eastbound on Columbia to North Avenue, out of Elmhurst.
No store employees or customers were injured in the incident.
Officers spoke to witnesses and identified the suspect vehicle as a gray 2006 Infiniti sedan with tinted windows.
At approximately 9 p.m., Elmhurst investigators found the suspect vehicle abandoned on the 4400 block of West Jackson Boulevard in Chicago and seized it.
Detectives are scanning the area for nearby security video cameras and evidence technicians have been processing the scene for evidence, police said.
Police released surveillance footage of the suspects. A suspect was wearing a white surgical mask, black hoodie, black “skinny” jeans and carrying a blue duffel bag. The other suspect was wearing a black mask, a black t-shirt with a black and red logo on the front, blue jeans with ripped knees, and was armed with a handgun.
