Two men accused in the armed robbery of a delivery driver were arrested Friday after police followed footprints in the snow, which led them to one man's hiding spot.
Officers responded to a call of an armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver around 8 p.m. Friday on the city’s South Side.
The driver told police the men threatened him with a loaded handgun while he was attempting to make a delivery. The offenders then removed cash from the victim’s pockets and fled the scene.
While canvassing the area, police discovered footprints in freshly fallen snow.
Officers followed the footprints to a spot where 26-year-old Jefferey Fields was hiding, police said.
Police then found Bernard Williams, 27, and also recovered the stolen money and a loaded weapon.
