Each man is charged with one count of felony home invasion with a dangerous weapon, two counts of felony burglary, and one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to vehicle.
Towbridge, on parole after a weapons conviction, was arrested December 27 for allegedly driving over 100 MPH, operating a motor vehicle without consent, and possession of drug paraphernalia in Ozaukee County, north of Milwaukee.
He was charged last May with having streetgang contact while on parole in Cook County.
Illinois State Police took the three men into custody after they allegedly left the victim's older model Honda crashed on the Dan Ryan Expressway about an hour after the crime. All three will be in bond court this afternoon.
The victim’s condition has stabilized at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
