Suspect In Custody After Batavia Bank Robbery

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A suspect is in custody after a bank was robbed Tuesday afternoon in far west suburban Batavia.

At 2:05 p.m., officers responded to a call of a robbery at Old Second Bank at 1991 W. Wilson St., according to FBI spokesman Garrett Croon.

Witnesses described to officers to vehicle the suspect entered and the direction the car went after leaving the bank, according to a statement from Batavia police. The pursuit for the suspect ended in Aurora and the vehicle was found a short time later in a parking lot in Yorkville.

The suspect was taken into custody, Croon said. They were due in court Thursday.

A second suspect was taken into custody by Aurora police on separate charges, police said.

Batavia High School was placed on soft lock down as a precaution and lifted shortly after the suspect's vehicle left the scene.
