Two men have been charged with robbing someone with a stun gun last month in west suburban Naperville.

Jeremy Mitchell, 21, and Jaden Smith, 18, were each charged with one felony count of aggravated robbery for the Aug. 2 hold-up, according to Naperville police.

Mitchell, who lives in Aurora, is accused of driving Smith to a meeting about 3 p.m. in a parking lot near Jefferson Avenue and Route 59, police said. Smith took $280 from the victim during the meeting, which was arranged online to purchase festival tickets.

When the victim “struggled to reclaim the money,” Smith brandished and threatened to use a stun gun, police said.

Mitchell was arrested Aug, 30, while Smith, a Round Lake Beach resident, was arrested on unrelated charges in Will County Sept. 12, police said.

Smith is being held at the Will County Adult Detention Facility on several felony drug charges, according to Will County sheriff’s office records. His combined bond for the three charges was $43,000.

Court information for Mitchell was not immediately available.
