20-year-old Joseph Lewis of Morgan Park and 19-year-old Donzell Lloyd of Calumet Heights robbed the women with a third person who has yet to be identified, according to a freshly-released media alert.
Police were assisted in their investigation by a photograph of the offenders’ license plate that was taken by a witness to one of the robberies, according to a source.
One woman told police that several men cornered her near the 1200 block of West Waveland around 2:50 a.m. and then began to chase after her. The woman said the men threatened to kill her if she did not stop running.

At around the same time, another woman reported being robbed near Fremont and Grace.
The second victim’s friend snapped a photo of the getaway car and police were able to forward the license plate information to other officers who soon found it on Lake Shore Drive.
Police pulled the vehicle over just south of North Avenue around 3:10 a.m. and all three occupants were identified by the robbery victims. Cops found proceeds from the robberies inside the vehicle, police said.
Lewis and Lloyd are charged with one count of felony robbery and two counts of felony robbery-indicating presence of a firearm, police said.
They are due in bond court this afternoon.
