An attempted crash-and-grab robbery was thwarted Tuesday morning by an employee who was still inside the north suburban electronics store.
Suspects crashed a van into Abt Electronics in Glenview about 5:38 a.m., but were thwarted from stealing any merchandise, according to a statement from Glenview police.
The suspects pulled into the store’s parking lot at 1200 Milwaukee Ave. in two vehicles, a minivan and a full-size van, and crashed the larger vehicle through two sets of glass doors, according to police.
Four males ran into the store, where they were confronted by an employee, police said.
They ran out of the store and drove away in the minivan, police said. No merchandise was taken.
Police later said the van they left behind was a stolen vehicle.
No injuries were reported and police continue to investigate.
