We've been told for years on the blog that Naperville is a veritable paradise. A haven for law and order. A fed living on every single block. But then this:
- A Papa John's pizza store was robbed Saturday night by a man armed with a gun, Naperville police and store officials said Sunday.
The suspect, described as a white man wearing a gray hoody, entered the 1220 W. Ogden Ave. business at about 7:10 p.m., displayed a handgun and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing, police Cmdr. Jason Arres said in a news release.
The robbery marks the fifth to have taken place in Naperville since Jan. 18, when 7-Eleven stores at 351 E. Bailey Road and 1490 E. Chicago Ave. – about three miles apart – were held up between 3:55 and 4:15 a.m., according to Naperville police. The suspect in both cases is believed to be the same person, described as a white man in his mid-30s standing about 6-foot-2 and weighing about 200 pounds. He wore dark clothing and a hat, partially covered his face and carried a dark-colored handgun or weapon, police said.
Sounds like Naperville is a hell-hole of gun crime run amok....like Englewood, except that the media can't wait to tell you the description of Naperville's armed robbers.
