Naperville Police Investigate Report of Aggravated Robbery Connected to an Arranged Meeting from an Online Sale Offer

Naperville police responded about 11:12 p.m. Thursday, February 14, 2019 to a parking lot near the intersection of Ridgeland Avenue and Naperville/Wheaton Road in northeast Naperville to the report of a robbery that had just occurred.

Upon arrival, responding officers learned that the victim had arranged online to meet the offender to sell an item of high value.

The offender is described as a male/white (Hispanic descent), early 20’s, approximately 5’6”-5’7” tall, approximately 165-175 lbs., with an athletic build and medium-length black hair.
