The footprints from three robbery suspects led police right to their doorstep after the group beat and robbed a delivery driver on Monday, Jan. 26, according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.

An employee from Main Moon, 3900 Erie St., was delivering food at 8:30 p.m. in the 1500 block of Superior St. when he was struck on the back of the head with what police believe was a baseball bat and the group took the food had intended to deliver. The suspects fled on foot, but investigators from the Racine Police Department tracked the group by their footsteps in the snow to a home in the 1600 block of Douglas Ave.

The two men and a boy were taken into police custody. All three are facing charges of armed robbery, first degree recklessly endangering safety and a probation hold.

The delivery driver was taken to Wheaton Franciscan Medical Center for treatment.
