On Tuesday, Nov. 9, Elmhurst Police were notified of an incident which had occurred at 148 N. York Street at approximately 6:30 p.m.

A 17- year-old employee of the business reported to police that an adult male had entered the store without wearing a face mask and when he was asked to put a mask on, used vulgar language directed at the employee and left the store.

A short time later, this individual sent a family member into the business to make a purchase.  The suspect then re-entered the store and told the employee he had spit on the cash his family member provided as payment.  The suspect then spit at the employee, with a small portion of the saliva striking the employee in his face.  The suspect then left the store.  A manager of the business and the victim contacted the Elmhurst Police later that night to report the incident.

Video surveillance was reviewed and a subsequent investigation led to the identification of the suspect, Sean P. Connell, 53, of the 19W200 block of Williamsburg Court in Oak Brook.  On Thursday, Nov. 18, an arrest warrant was obtained for Connell on misdemeanor charges of Battery and Disorderly Conduct.  Bond was set at $1,000 – 10% applies.

On Thursday, Nov. 18, Connell surrendered himself at the Elmhurst Police Department and posted the required cash bond. Connell was released with a court date of Monday, Dec. 20, at the DuPage County Judicial Center in Wheaton.
