Highland Park Armed Robbery Thwarted by Employees
(Highland Park, IL) Police in Highland Park say some quick thinking employees thwarted an armed robbery over the weekend.
Police were called to the CVS in the 15-hundred block Clavey Road early Sunday morning after two men reportedly entered the store, one of them armed with a gun.
Employees were able to escape out a back door, and were said to intentionally set off a fire alarm, which scared off the would-be robbers.
A heavy police presence came to the scene to make sure the offenders weren’t still inside. There were no reported injuries, and the situation remains under investigation.
