Bond Set For 4 Men Charged In Armed Robbery, Police-Involved Car Chase

CHICAGO (CBS)-- Bond has been set for four men accused of an armed robbery that led to a high-speed police chase, according to the DuPage County Sheriff's Office.

Mashawn Barnes, 27, Kevin Jones, 31, Calvert Williams, 29, and Dion Young, 20, appeared in court where Judge Kavita Athanikar set bond at $2 million with 10 percent to apply for all four men.

According to a press release from the Lombard Chief of Police, the four are accused of "breaking into a Lombard apartment, robbing the occupants at gunpoint and then leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase."

Officials said a woman and her daughter entered their apartment building, and two armed men wearing masked entered before the door closed. The men pointed a gun at the back of both the victims' heads and ordered the woman to take them to her apartment.

The men allegedly tied up the woman and another occupant who was found sleeping in the apartment, stole money as well as a handgun and other items before fleeing.

The female victim was able to free herself and call police.

Lombard police attempted to initiate a traffic stop once the offender's vehicle was located.

According to officials, the offender's vehicle "accelerated away rapidly" and was later involved in two separate crashes. The men were apprehended shortly after fleeing from the crash on foot.

The four men are expected back in court March 18.
