    Man Arrested, Charged For July Robbing Of Naperville Portillo’s

    A 21-year-old Chicago man who allegedly faked having a gun and robbed a Naperville Portillo’s in July 2022 has been arrested and charged with Aggravated Battery, a Class 1 Felony.

    On July 20, 2022, at approximately 11:36 p.m., the accused approached two female employees of Portillo’s in Naperville on foot as they were working in the drive-through lane of the restaurant. It is alleged that the accused kept one hand in his pocket implying that he had a firearm. He then demanded money from the victims, ripped the company fanny packs containing approximately $680 from the victims and at one point patted down one of the victims to make sure she did not have any more money.

    During the robbery, the accused told the victims “Hurry up, I don’t want to have to do this.”

    Following the robbery, he fled the scene on foot.

    The accused was arrested Monday on a fugitive from justice warrant out of Denver, Colorado and was charged with the Portillo’s robbery on Tuesday.

    DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and Naperville Chief of Police Jason Arres announced that bond has been set at $100,000 with 10% to apply.

    “The allegations that this defendant robbed two girls while they were working the drive-through lane at a local restaurant are very disturbing,” Berlin said. “While [he] may have not had a real gun with him, the paralyzing fear these girls experienced, believing [him] to be armed, was real. Thankfully, neither of the victims was physically harmed.”

    The accused’s next court appearance is scheduled for February 21, 2023, for arraignment in front of Judge Margaret O’Connell.
