A juvenile has been arrested in connection with last weekend's brazen armed robbery of the flagship McDonald's restaurant in west suburban Oak Brook.

Police said they cannot release the teen's name because he is a minor. Sources told NBC Chicago he's a 17-year-old from Bellwood.

He's awaiting a bond hearing at the DuPage County Jail, Oak Brook police said in a release.

A second person has been questioned, police said, but has since been released without charges. His involvement in the robbery is still under investigation, police said.

A third person has been identified but not yet charged, they said.

Two black males wearing masks burst into the restaurant on Sunday, flashed their guns and ordered all the customers and employees to the ground, threatening to "blow their f*****g heads off," sources said. The robbers demanded the manager open the safe, but they ended up grabbing only cash from the counter drawers.

The pair got away in a vehicle driven by the third male, police said.

The same location was robbed in August.

Anyone with information on Sunday's robbery should call Oak Brook police at 630-368-5060.
