CHICAGO (STMW) — Three men were charged Sunday in connection with an armed robbery that occurred in the East Garfield Park neighborhood.
The men robbed a person Sunday at about 2:50 a.m. near the intersection of Jackson Boulevard and Western Avenue, according to police. Shortly after the robbery, all three entered a vehicle which drove away and went onto the Eisenhower Expressway.
When officers arrived they observed the wanted vehicle on I-290 had crashed into an embankment at Polk, police said.
There were no reported injuries.

Merrill saw two additional charges of driving on a suspended license and reckless driving.
All three are due in bond court Monday.
