A Johnsburg man was arrested and another suspect is being sought after the duo allegedly lured a victim through an online sales app to a Subway in Lincolnshire where they tried robbing the person.

The Lincolnshire Police Department was called around 3:45 p.m. Thursday to a report of a fight in progress at the Subway, 185 Milwaukee Avenue.

During the incident, several businesses and a school were briefly placed on a soft lockdown during the investigation.

A replica handgun was recovered at the scene. Police are still searching for the second suspect.
