Three women from the Milwaukee area face charges for beating and robbing a man in the Lincoln Park area.
Though the police officers saw the attack, the women were faster. They were in the car with the victim, and during the chase, they dumped him on the street.
The search for the attackers
Police released a flash message over the air and caught the women. As the women pulled over in the 1000 block of West North Avenue near Sheffield Avenue, the chase was over.
The women were lucky during the first escape, but they didn't manage to get away the second time.
The victim is a 24-year-old male, and he was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with facial injuries.
Police sources add the man entered the car because he thought it was a ride-share.
