A West Chicago man faces charges in connection with the armed robbery of a Domino's Pizza in St. Charles late last year.

Jonah A. De Leon, 19, of the 600 block of South Neltnor Boulevard, was arrested Tuesday after police found evidence linking him to the Dec. 27 robbery, according to St. Charles police. He is charged with armed robbery and aggravated robbery.

De Leon is accused of entering the front door of the Domino's at 1450 W. Main St., displaying a handgun and demanding cash, police said. He fled on foot after an employee handed over money and a cellphone.

Authorities responded about 12:17 a.m. and searched the area, but could not find the robber.

After launching a joint investigation, St. Charles and West Chicago police searched De Leon's residence and vehicle and found evidence connecting him to the crime, officials said. Police also received tips from members of the public who saw surveillance photos of the robbery.
