CHICAGO — Police said footprints in freshly fallen snow helped them catch two men who allegedly robbed a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint Friday night.
The men walked up to a delivery driver in the 8400 block of South Colfax Avenue in South Chicago about 8 p.m. and threatened him with a gun, police said. The 30-year-old driver, who was out on a delivery for a local pizzeria, told cops that three men robbed him, according to an arrest report.
When officers were called to the scene, they canvassed the area and found tracks in freshly fallen snow, police said. It appeared that one of the robbers ran through the snow to a "hiding spot," where cops detained him, police said.
During the course of the investigation, a second suspect was arrested and charged. Police recovered a loaded gun and the stolen cash.
Jefferey Fields, 26, of south suburban Richton Park, and Bernard Williams, 27, of the 8400 block of South Marquette Avenue, were each charged with one felony count of armed robbery. Bernard was also charged for an outstanding warrant.
As of Sunday night, no one else had been charged in connection with the robbery, police said.
Fields and Williams were ordered held on $250,000 bail Sunday.
