Evanston police have arrested two men and are seeking a third in connection with three robberies in Evanston this month.
Daniel Jones, 26, of 1823 Hovland Court is charged in all three incidents, Mario Rucker, 19, of the same address, is charged in the first two.
Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew says the two tried to enter a woman’s car at 1607 Simpson St. on Feb. 6, but she managed to drive it away.
Then later the same day, Glew says, the two robbed a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint of $500, his cellphone and wallet at 2122 Foster St.
In the third case, Glew says, Jones was one of the men who robbed and kidnapped a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint, stealing $20, a wallet and pizzas from the driver. Glew says they also tried to steal the victim’s car but it got stuck in the snow, so they fled, leaving the victim in the car.
Jones faces charges of attempted robbery, armed robbery, aggravated vehicular hijacking, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
He’s being held without bond and is next scheduled to appear in Skokie district court on March 13.
Rucker is charged with attempted robbery and aggravated robbery and is also being held without bond.
