AURORA — Police here Thursday released surveillance photos they hope will help catch two men who robbed a northeast side convenience store at gunpoint earlier in the week.
Police said the photos show two men who appear to be Hispanic, between 25- and 30-years-old, one wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and the other in a black hooded sweatshirt.
The pair entered the BP Amoco in the 1500 block of Butterfield Road at 1:40 a.m. Tuesday and confronted a 58-year-old man working behind the counter. The suspect in the gray hoodie displayed a handgun and demanded money, police said.
The employee complied and the two men took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the store on foot, going south. During the incident, the man fired the weapon inside the store but did not hit anyone.
A search of the area by a Kane County Sheriff K-9 unit was unsuccessful, police said. The armed suspect is 6-foot or 6-foot-1, 180 to 190 pounds, and has a small vertical patch of facial hair on his chin. The other suspect is also white or Hispanic, 6-foot-1 or 6-foot-2, 180 to 200 pounds, and has a large logo or design on the right chest of the black hoodie he was searing, and gray jeans.
Call investigators at 630-256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at 630-892-1000. Callers to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and qualify for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to any arrests.
