On Jan. 12, just 32 days after Antwyon Underwood was discharged from parole for his fourth robbery conviction, he and an accomplice robbed one of their neighbors in Rogers Park, prosecutors alleged.

The next night, 33-year-old Underwood allegedly called an Evanston pizzeria and used his real name to arrange for delivery to the 1700 block of West Jonquil Terrace.

When the 25-year-old driver arrived around 1:30 a.m., Underwood and 30-year-old Errol Martin implied that they had guns as they forced their way into the victim’s vehicle and stole his valuables, according to allegations in court records.

The delivery driver later identified Underwood and Martin in photo arrays, police said. Officers arrested both men a couple of days later.

Underwood and Martin are also accused of mugging one of their neighbors on the 7700 block of North Marshfield on Jan. 12.

That victim also identified both men in photo arrays, police said.

Prosecutors charged Underwood and Martin each with two felony counts of aggravated robbery and felony unlawful vehicular invasion. Judge Mary Marubio ordered Underwood held without bail. She set bail for Martin at $20,000 and ordered him to go onto electronic monitoring if he can post the mandatory $2,000 deposit bond.

Police said Martin and Underwood are both members of the Gangster Disciples street gang.

According to state records, Underwood was discharged from parole on Dec. 10 for an armed robbery that he committed in 2012.

He was on parole at the time of that robbery for two aggravated robberies that he committed in 2010. And the 2010 robberies took place almost immediately after he completed parole for a 2007 attempted robbery and gun violation, the records show.
