Now, this is exactly how justice should be served!
Two men attempted to rob a family in broad daylight and then they got more than they bargained for.
The men who seem to have been posing as workers and wearing face masks tried robbing the family in the middle of the day. The event was caught on the family's Ring doorbell camera and shows the men approach the house and enter it. The next thing we see is the homeowner and one of the men wrestling out the door and the homeowner punching him repeatedly.
Arlington Heights police said Monday that an attempted home invasion that ended with one suspected perpetrator dead and another in custody does not appear to be a random attack.
Charges are still pending against the suspect captured after the Saturday home invasion on the 2400 block of North Evergreen Avenue, on the village's north side, according to police.
The case is now in the hands of the Cook County state's attorney's office, which is reviewing evidence and other information before approving formal charges, authorities said.
Village Manager Randy Recklaus wanted "to stress" Monday night, during a village board meeting, that the attack was not random. "The investigation indicates that this was an isolated and targeted act against a specific address," he said.
"An arrest was made, and there is no threat to the general public related to that situation," Recklaus added.
Reached Monday, the owner of the home where the attack occurred declined to comment.
The best part of the story is that the robber who ended up in custody is being charged for the murder of the other robber. This is the way that it should be if you ask me. When you play stupid games you win stupid prizes.
