BOLINGBROOK – The FBI arrested two men for allegedly holding up a cell phone store Thursday.
Andrew Coleman, 30, of Country Club Hills, and Rashaud Gibson, 18, of Calumet City, will appear in federal court this week on robbery charges, according to FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde.
At 5:25 p.m., two men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered T-Mobile, 745 E. Boughton Road, while a customer and two employees were inside. According to court filings, Coleman pulled out a handgun, said "This is a holdup" and forced everyone into a back room.
Surveillance video allegedly shows Gibson went to a storage locker and filled white laundry bags with boxes of cell phones. Coleman threatened a customer by holding a gun to his head before forcing the three victims into a bathroom while the robbers fled, according to the FBI.
Tracking software traced the phones to the parking lot of a liquor store on Dixie Highway in Harvey, where police found Coleman and Gibson putting a hooded sweatshirt into a charity donation bin, according to the FBI.
According to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court, Coleman and Gibson admitted to the robbery during questioning.
The customer did not suffer any injuries.
