BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook police are looking for two armed robbers who tied up a Radio Schack employee before getting off with electronics.

Around 12:34 p.m. Wednesday, two black males entered Radio Shack, 1196 W. Boughton Road, displayed a silver handgun and escorted the employee to the back of the store before tying his hands and feet and making him sit in a chair, according to police.

The suspects then proceeded to take laptops, smartphones and the store video surveillance and then exited the store through the rear door, police said.

The suspects are described as black males in their 20s.

One is described as a 5-foot-5, 120-pound man with a light complexion, mustache and wearing a khaki floppy hat, a T-shirt and blue jeans. The other is described as having dark skin, dreadlocks, a mustache with a goatee and wearing a blue baseball hat with jeans.

The pair possibly fled the area in a silver, four-door sedan with tinted windows, police said.

The incident remains under investigation.
