West Chicago police are hunting for three masked men who robbed an AT&T store Monday evening at 159 N. Route 59.

Police said the men entered the store about 7:45 p.m. and one of them displayed a two-tone black semi-automatic pistol. They escaped with numerous cellphones and fled north on Route 59.


Police said they do not have a description of the getaway vehicle.

Police said all three men were wearing masks and dark-colored hoodies. Two were wearing Chicago Bears pajama-style pants, and the other wore black sweatpants with white striping. One of the men was carrying a red backpack.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call police at (630) 293-2222.

The robbery occurred less than a day after three masked men, one of whom had a handgun, robbed a store on the 600 block of North Route 59 in Naperville and escaped with cash, cigarettes, a cellphone and keys.
