Two men who attempted to pull off a daring armed robbery during the daylight hours on Friday in Bolingbrook were tracked down and arrested by police, Bolingbrook Police Lt. Mike Rompa said.

Dimaris Smith, 19, and Keondre Crumpton, 19, were taken into custody, processed and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility.

Smith was charged with armed robbery. Crumpton was charged with armed robbery, unlawful use of a weapon, no FOID card and defacing identification marks on the firearm.

Rompa said Bolingbrook police responded to a call for help on the 400 block of North Bolingbrook Drive at 10:07 a.m. Friday. Upon arrival, he said officers were informed the victims—a 30-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man, both from Bolingbrook—were robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot.

"Allegedly, the offenders entered the victims vehicle and ultimately attempted to rob them," Rompa said. "A struggle ensued and the offenders fled in their vehicle. The female victim was pushed to the ground, but no shots were fired."

Rompa said patrol officers located Smith upon conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle on Granda Court. And, further investigation revealed the identity of the gunman who fled as Crumpton, Rompa said.

"Officers were able to link Crumpton to a residence on the 200 block of Granada Court, and they secured the area around the residence until a detective was able to convince Crumpton to exit the residence without incident," Rompa said.

He said the firearm—a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun, was recovered by officers.

Rompa said the incident remains under investigation.

Too bad the 34 year old victim didn't have a conceal carry permit and a handgun. Swift justice right in the chest.

Judges PLEASE lock these thugs up good!! They will only get out to steal and rob someone again. I bet these are the thugs that break in the houses during the day too. I feel for the victims. So sorry this happened.

I'd bet they'll plead not guilty. This will carry the case on forever, but if this victim, had a conceal/carry permit we'd be saving Illinois a ton of money. Worthless pieces of c*#p, let's congratulate their parents for being great examples.
