Arrest in Speedway Armed Robbery:
A 19-year-old Carol Stream man has been arrested for the robbery of a Naperville Speedway gas station back in October of last year. Robert Hill has been charged with armed robbery with a firearm and aggravated robbery after allegedly entering the Speedway on October 15 with two other individuals and pistol whipping a station attendant, then stealing his phone, as well as money from the business. The victim was not seriously injured. Hill appears in court on June 25.
Lawsuit Against Former Officers:
A former Naperville man has filed a lawsuit against former Naperville police officers, claiming they framed him for murder in the 1995 fire that killed his mother-in-law. William Amor was imprisoned for 22 years for the crime, but was recently acquitted in a DuPage County court. The federal civil rights lawsuit names the city of Naperville along with the former officers, and says Amor suffered physical and emotional distress in the weeks leading to his coerced confession. The city of Naperville plans to defend against the lawsuit.
Big Night For Naperville Sports:
Last night was a memorable one for Naperville high school sports, especially Naperville North.
The Huskies started the night with a 1-0 win in girls’ soccer over Belleville West. Katelynn Buescher scored the winning goal with 20 minutes to play, advancing North to the state semi finals on Friday at North Central College.
Then, the Naperville North Girls Lacrosse team scored in the final minute against St. Charles East to send the game into overtime. In the extra session, Lauren Platou scored the game winner for the Huskies for a 7 to 6 victory. North advances to the state semi finals on Friday night at Hinsdale Central.
To cap off the evening, the Naperville North Boys Lacrosse team had a dramatic comeback of its own against South Elgin. The Huskies got a steal with just over 10 seconds to play. A long pass somehow got through the defense allowing Jacob Lubrant to score with less than a second left, tying the game at 10. Lubrant then scored the game winner in overtime on a pass from Scotty Allgood as the Huskies advance to state to play Loyola tomorrow night at Hinsdale Central.
Neuqua Valley Boys Volleyball also had a big night, knocking off Hinsdale Central in a high intensity three set battle to win the sectional championship. The Wildcats move on to the state quarterfinals on Friday morning where they will meet Lincoln Way West.
